French Country Blue ~ My Craigslist Score

You know I love a good furniture makeover, so what could be better than one day a month dedicated to themed furniture makeovers? Wahoo! Today’s theme is FRENCH, and ooh la la, I’m ready to play with my French country blue.

My blogging friends and I have created some wonderful inspiration and eye-candy for you with our French makeovers, so be sure to check out all their fantastic efforts below.

The inspiration for my makeover was this French Provincial set I found a few months back on Craigslist. I originally stuck it in my shop as a custom request, but quickly took it back out when I saw the upcoming theme.

Vintage Dressing Table French Country Makeover

There’s no mistaking that I am drawn to dressing tables and vanities. They’re so unique and full of elegance. At some point they have fallen to the wayside as far as being a piece of furniture on demand, but they are quickly making a come-back as a much desired addition to the bedroom decor. I can see why. They’re functional as a desk, mirror for morning makeovers, and a fun place for a lady to call her own.

It wasn’t too long ago that I acquired this vintage dressing table off of Craigslist, and it actually ended up being sold by a friend and neighbor from just around the block. Although it may look like an antique, it’s really a Mid Century Modern piece made to look as if it is has been around for ages. Quality made with dove-tailed drawers and gorgeous veneer, this dark beauty was in great shape for the most part, but did have some wear and missing parts.

The overall finish had held up well on top, but what really struck me was that the pulls were plastic. Really? Did they have to go there on this beautiful piece? Some were busted, of course, and I knew that this girl needed some new jewelry (aka. hardware) Read more
