I've been super lucky finding French Provincial pieces lately. I worked on these during the week. The first was a custom order. It was in crazy great shape when I found it but a little too shiny for my taste.
I sanded back the top w/ my orbital to "naked" wood and stained it in Minwax Provincial. Followed up with several applications of Wipe On Polyurethane.
Time for a new camera. That dark spot is always front and center. Painted in a mix of Paris Gray w/ a touch of Aubusson and clear waxed.
The pulls are dry brushed with old white. I love this look!
This one is waiting for its new home and listed in my Etsy shop. I can totally see this in a baby's nursery. Done in Paris Gray and Old White.
I really loved working on both of these. They were clean with no repairs to be made. I said in my last post, I'm staying away from stuff that needs a ton of TLC before the painting begins and I am sticking to it!
Thanks for popping in, Sue
