This week I worked on some really cool shabby chic French provincial style furniture pieces. These were all client owned pieces that I refinished to her customized look. This particular client is renovating their master bedroom. When we had our design consult we talked about a few different finishes that would compliment the waisncoting she was putting against the main accent wall. We settled on a greige color (grayish brown) with antiquing. I love the versatility of this color because it goes so well with both browns and grays. For the dresser she really liked the wood stained top idea to contrast against the nightstands. In addition, with all the bedroom pieces I sanded back to a white finish to add extra contrast. Lastly, was a bathroom vanity that she decided to go with a custom mixed navy with gold accents and hardware. I love how all these pieces came out! I cannot wait to see them in her space! -Vanessa
Hutches and cabinets with chicken wire are some of my favorite things. I love the rustic farmhouse vibe it gives to furniture! Word to the wise: If you plan on tackling this DIY project I suggest wearing gloves and using an air compressor staple gun! Makes the process so much easier and less painful ;) Here is a small collection of some of my most recent projects using the stuff! Which is your favorite?
