You have to see this project. It all started on a curb in a less than pleasant neighorhood. I found this beauty. I love french provincial style furniture.
You can see hear the gold that was in the groove. This is a late 1960s or early 1970s vintage piece.
It had no drawers and had been left in the rain. I spray painted her with some white paint all over first to see in any moldy or animal smells and took off the cardboard backing which was soaked. I had to decide where to cut the front because I plannedd to use baskets along the top setion and then below to put a curtain . I thought I would use burlap to make the curtain.
I then painted her with Martha Stewart Satin in Talc. I really like the Satin finish because it has a nice sheen to it. I then decided rather than use burlap for a curtain I had some black and cream toile fabric. I simply used fabric glue to fold over the edges to make the curtain. I used tiny tension rods. I purchased 3 folio baskets from Target.
Here she is ....I am in love with her and am keeping for myself.
Thanks for visiting!
