More patine...

Sorry for my lack of posts, I promise to post more regularly from now on....

I love the way that patine can change the most simple objects such as the chair and console in the photo above.

Love these.....

....frontons, and to think that they once formed part of old armoires, buffets etc.

A coat of paint and they breathe again.....................c'est magique!

Before and after...

{all images from here}

I am always amazed how patine makes something old and often quite ordinary into something that looks new and fabulous.....

This is the bed end before it was painted and.....

..............after it has had the patine paint effect applied. What a transformation!

A bientot,

From Bedposts to Bedside lamps

(photo courtesy Cécile Lebert)

I've just found a couple of pairs of old bedposts (actually they might be old table legs) in my garage. Don't ask me why I decided to start the clean out in such freezing temperatures... but it was worth fossicking around in there to see what was left! Sometime over the coming weeks we could use them to make a pair of these together - while we still need inside light - before the spring comes! What do you think friends?
