French Flavor - Part I

Bonjour darlings,

I hope everything is well with you!  I have been
very busy working in my daughter's room.  She
wanted her bedroom changed for a French style.
We bought a couple of furniture pieces through
craigslist, and added to the ones that she already
own.  I have painted all her furniture, and  did
some changes to it with the help of my hubby. 
She chose her furniture to be painted white, and  
the accessories that she pick are black, white and
hot pink .

Enjoy the beginning of  Ooh la  la !

This vanity was found through craigslist, at an
antique store.   

Primer's first coat

Mirror's frame

Night stands

Jewelry Armoire

To the drawers I covered the old holes
and my husband drilled new ones in the
center, and we changed the hardware of
the vanity and the jewelry armoire.

From this...
To this.

This was on the top of the mirror,
and now has this plaque .

A lots of work, but the results are very

I'm in love with the results of this headboard,
and I think you will too!

This plaque is going to be attached on the top
of the headboard.

Can you picture the headboard with
that plaque.  Beautiful!

Primer done!

Upholstery done, now it needs the trim
and the plaque attached.

Just a little taste of what is coming next.
My dear husband has been helping me
with all the extras.  He sure is a
Keeper.  ;) 
 and he is also working with his second
bird carving, a cute sparrow.

Here's a few photos of the bird.
I heart birds!

 Individual feather have been burned.

Stay tuned for French Flavor - Part II
