French Provincial Cabinet

      I acquired this about three years ago.  Typical for the time period and type, this reproduction French Provincial piece, made sometime between 1950-late 1970's, is not all wood.  It ended up at the back of my storage area until I decided to give it a make-over.   Dark and light gray chalk paints were used to update it, and then silver was used for accents.   I found some wonderful graphics on Etsy, at a shop named GraphicsMarketplace.  There were so many to choose from I had a problem narrowing it down.  A total of five were chosen and I transfered the graphics to the cabinet.
A clear matte finish has been added, and these cute knobs finish it off.  The measurements are 30 inches across the front, 31 1/2 tall and about 17 inches deep and this piece will be available for delivery next week.  It has a few bumps and bruises, but it is a lovely piece that could be an entry way piece, coffee station, or serve a variety of other purposes.
