Frenchy Make Over!

Remember this from a few dys ago, this lovely carved large desk,
well, I was so excited to get to use for my sewing desk-table, I worked on it after work for a few days and here is the after.

Doesn't it Look Pretty- I Love It!!

Then there was the cute little accent chair, I could not pass up either, I just love the French Inspired Furniture, Such amazing craftsmanship-detail..

The carved flowers, detail in legs, or that bottem slant of wood.

My old chair was black-with cheetah fabric, I decided to go with heirloom white and a satin pink gold textured fabric.. Love It!!!

Thanks for letting me Share my lovely treasures.

P.S. as for those who are curious about my ceiling at the shoppe,
no decisions have been made, we have to wait for permission to make any changes.(So in Limbo)..


  1. Both are gorgeous! I love the pink on that chair. I wish I had that desk! I went to your craigslist. You're good! I bet that keeps money coming in constantly. I have emails to return.

  2. Hi Karryann! Both the desk and the chair look fabulous. Great job!!
