French Inspired Pieces

I love french typography right now. It has to be my favorite little statement to make on a refinish! I want to put it on everything but I don’t want to overuse it on my pieces. I have done a few and I want to show them to you.

This was a small china hutch I refinished in white and a soft blue color. I glazed this piece in a custom dark mix and then added just a part of my stencil onto the drawer because I felt like it was missing something. It really made this looked finished and gorgeous.

I thought this would be so perfect in a bathroom

Next was a custom ordered refinish on a dresser my client found on craigslist. She was so patient with me during this process. She waited quite a while for me to get to it because I was busy putting things together for a vintage market I was going to do. She dropped the piece off and knew exactly what she wanted! I love clients like that:)

It turned out gorgeous! I think the wait was worth it. This piece looks classy and timeless. I painted it cream and lightly distressed it. I added my french typography and also sanded the saying to look worn in random places. I stripped the top, sanded, stained in ebony and sealed with poly.

Heres the before picture.
