Recent Finds---Before and After

I've been updating some of my recent finds.  You'll see that I'm in a gray-frenchy-chippy mood.  
Check out my treasures.

This three drawer solid wood chest would make a perfect bedside or side table.
 I updated it with some gray paint.
Did you notice the incised quatrefoil design on the sides?

New mercury glass knobs from Anthropologie.

This is the before.

Next find, also looking good in gray, is a curvy table with a deep drawer and carved accents.

A closer look.

The before.

This next piece has its original hand-painted pattern.  It was missing its seat though.
Next to it is an equally gorgeous florentine column.

I added a new seat with Belgian linen fabric and bullion fringe.

What have you found and transformed?


They'll be for sale at our first sale of the year at Sweet Clover.
Hope to see you there.  It looks like the weather is going to cooperate.  Yea.
