Isn't she quite attractive? She's French with lovely curves and dovetail drawers. Oh, check out the beautiful brass pulls. Gorgeous.
When I got Meredith she was quite attractive, but a little dark. She also was missing two of her drawer pulls. Here she is before:
Then added my favorite color Duck Egg Blue - beautiful and dreamy and perfect for a bedroom:
The drawers were waxed with clear wax and I thought about adding some dark wax and distressing but I just thought she looked so beautiful with the two tone color. The brass pulls needed a little bit of a clean:
I soaked them briefly in ammonia, wiping and rinsing cleaning. They shined up really nice. Here is one on the bureau:
I got replacement knobs from a wonderful antique shop in Cohasset. I could spend hours and hours in Reflections Antique Emporium because it is filled to the brim with the most amazing treasures. These little pulls were just tucked away on a shelf waiting for me:
Aren't the fabulous?
Here is Meredith all dressed up and ready to go. Right side:
But where are my manners? I haven't introduced you to Isabelle, her much taller sister and equally attractive (apologies for the poor lighting in my guest room):
So there are my two French lovelies. I am in love with both these pieces so much and wish I could keep them but my house is just to small for both of them. Meredith and Isabelle will be looking for a new home soon. What do you think? C'est magnifique?
