Friends With Benefits

I completely lucked out on Craigslist last week. I picked up two French Provincial sets from the same seller at a crazy low price. Actually I didn't pick them up, would've taken me ten trips. My friend with a box truck did for me. Same friend who owns the box company I use for packing my Etsy stuff. Now that's what I call a friend with benefits.

Here's one set...a Henry Link. The other is similar but doesn't have nightstands.

I just finished the dresser and mirror from the other set. I'm going to break the set up and paint the pieces differently. Seems when I do a full set buyers want just one or two pieces anyway and I get bored doing same old, same old.

The top sanded down 'cause you know I love a stained top.

I mixed up some chalk paint....Aubusson, Graphite, Paris Gray and little Old White and came up with this...






Couldn't attach the mirror because my assistants (daughters) were MIA....how convenient!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I am off to finish cleaning and then pick up my son at the train station...YAY!


Linking up here..
