I'm Loving Shabby French Country


Just Finished


When I bought this French nightstand
I have it say it was in sad shape.


I cleaned, taped, painted, sanded, stained, hammered, & screwed! 


First I painted it white then sanded & then stained to get the look I was going for.


The top drawer runners weren't in the best shaped but after a little thought
&
planning I fixed it so now it will work just fine.


The bottom draw runners were past fixing so I opted to just not try
 &
 do something a little different.

I applied some toile wallpaper.


The front of the tabletop was curved & scalloped
 so
I took a piece of blue chalk
 &
rubbed it around the edge.

That worked GREAT!!! 


It's getting close to done ...


I didn't touch the Gold painted trim ... I love the old Patina look!

I also lined the top drawer with the toile paper.


Then we ( my sweet hubby) cut a new floor bottom for the place the bottom drawer would have been.
I then papered it too!


I went to work on the legs next.


I Love the Legs!


Just a touch of black & a little stain.


+++ Next +++

Time to get the sewing machine out
 &
 make a small curtain.
I used a remnant of french toile printed fabric.


Finished and on it's way to Arkansas.
It's for Sale
