Vintage Bassett Bedroom Furniture

A bit back I was lucky enough to come across an entire fabulous set of Bassett French Provincial furniture.  Family pieces, they were in pretty good condition but needed to be updated.  I chose black to highlight the gorgeous hardware and trim pieces.

The first two pieces shown below have found new homes already:

It truly is a pleasure refurbishing quality vintage furniture!  We were lucky to be able to purchase this and have had fun redoing it.  Last piece to be done is a full size bed set.

Fabulous King Sleigh Bed

First of all, so sorry but it has sold.  It turned out so beautifully that after all Miss Evie’s work I had to share – lasted 24 hours in the shop!

She found this heavy thing (ask me, I helped carry it!), hauled it home and painted it with Lincoln’s Hat chalk paint.  Then she had the idea of using a little gold gilding powder with their dark wax and proceeded to wear her arms out both waxing and then buffing it!

A bit of strategic distressing and voila’:

So hard to get a proper picture of just how subtle the waxing is – the new owner loves it!!
