I love French Provincial style anything so when I saw this piece posted on Craigslist, I sent an email immediately. This style is very popular and pretty much everyone likes it. When it comes to Craigslist, you gotta move fast. True confessions – I scan Craigslist almost hourly most days to find great pieces. When you do what I do, you just have to. At least until yard sale season begins anyway and then there are many more pieces available. But in the dead of winter, Craigslist is probably my most frequented source for furniture. I was excited when the owner contacted me back to see if I wanted to buy it.
I sure did.
Here is the before…cute, but quite rough.
I kept the lower pulls – I painted them with my leftover Miss Mustard Seed Ironstone Milk Paint. I added two antique milk white glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware. I just love the white – they fit this piece so well. It helped that they were just $2 each. Holy cuteness Batman!
Needless to say, she found a new home very quickly and that sweet little desk found a great new home.
The perfect ending to a perfect story.
