French Provincial Beauties

I have been getting SO MANY calls about this beautiful French Provincial set!  Simply because someone had simply decided this set was no longer beautiful to them, they landed in my hands and I am ecstatic they did!! I had no idea that the day Chris brought home this vintage Chest of Drawers and Dresser from Bankhead Rd in Atlanta that my phone would be blowing up with people wanting them for their home.

These pieces are made of solid cherry wood.  Their arrived with original hardware, and every single drawer is beautifully dovetailed and in great working condition.  To top it off, they are made by the historic Bassett Furniture Company!

I had a total vision for these pieces. First it was off to my favorite neighborhood boutique The Bird & The Bee to grab some Annie Sloan “Country Grey” and Annie Sloan “Graphite” Chalk Paint.

I started this project by removing all of the original hardware, and painting them a rich Graphite black/gray.

I then painted the tops of both the Chest of Drawers and Dresser in the same Graphite for an additional added pop of color…

Moving on to the bodies of the pieces, I decided on a clean, neutral Country Gray.

A few finishing touches of lightly distressing each piece and sealing them with two coats of Annie Sloan clear wax and a coat of dark wax for that added distressed touch, and they were looking like original works of art.

I had such a great time bringing these pieces back to life!  I think they just look gorgeous and hope the awesome woman Chris delivered them to a few Sunday’s ago loves them as much as I do!
