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:

There are two  nightstands

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.

Not Your Grandma’s Avocado Green French Provincial Dresser!

Take a typical lovely HUGE French Provincial 9 drawer dresser and paint it this fabulous Olive color and then glaze it in black before waxing and you end up with this!!!

Absolutely Fabulous!!! ~SOLD~

No before picture-we aren’t very good at that it seems-sorry!  Imagine a big brown blah china cabinet.  Great lines and style but boring…..

Add lots of silver paint, black glaze and gorgeous wallpaper on the back and voila!

Another Annie Sloan project completed!

I have to say I stepped out of my comfort zone on this one  (and the discouraging comment from the Hubs was no help).

When I first painted it in Paris Grey it just needed a little something more.  So I mixed some black glaze, had a ball applying and removing it, then I distressed and waxed.

His comment you ask – You’ve muddied the paint – or words to that affect.  Uh oh, but I thought it looked pretty darn good!  After a fabric search (I am not a fabric person either!), I came home with three choices and we decided on this one.

Your turn to weigh in now – my partners seem to like it a LOT!
