French Provincial is one of my favorite furniture styles. I mean who doesn’t love the pretty hardware and the curvy furniture fronts. Well, the guys might not like it for their rooms but us girls do.
The before is kind of sad huh. French Provincial furniture of this style was manufactured in the 50’s and 60’s. I remember this furniture. I sighed over it as a little girl. The furniture wasn’t in my parent’s budget at the time. But that’s okay, I wasn’t deprived as a child!
Now I like painting these pieces when I can find them!! The details and the original hardware look great painted and they distress beautifully. This desk and hutch was brought in by a client for a custom paint job.
I mixed Beyond Paint in Bright White and acrylic paints in blues and greens to make this lovely color. That’s only one reason I like Beyond paint. I can make all kinds of colors using the acrylic paints with the Bright White.
How about the checkerboard black and white floor?? This is Sara’s painting room at You Never Know. The floor is in pretty rough shape but I love the design. Sara likes to get paint on the floor. She says painting is what we do and the paint tells a story. I like that because I’m a really messy painter! You see all the turquoise paint on the floor, right. That’s after this one paint project. It’s a good thing Sara likes me.
