This desk is typical 1950's-60's French Provincial, that had an original color scheme of gold and white. As with all of the pieces of this era that I have worked on, it is not all wood, so it takes more than usual prep time, to get a lasting finish. Someone had painted it black.....so I had that to deal with also. I forgot to get a picture...but I can testify...it was bad. I chose to paint this in Blush Pink and Linen White from Rustoleum Chalked Paint. Cute butterfly stencils decorate the top. The chair is an ice cream parlor type painted in Linen White. Both pieces were sealed with Rustoleum Matte Finish.
The seat has been reupholstered in a canvas type material and stenciled with rosebuds and roses. If you are in the area the Market will open Wednesday, May 17th from 10-5.
