Good morning, Hope everyone had a great Monday. Mine was actually quite nice, and really relaxing. Had time to take nice long walk, enjoy beautiful weather,etc....so it was a good one.
I am so thrilled to present my newly styled sun-washed, slightly distressed patina treasure. What a show off I am, lol?
I love finishes made from nature, rather than something that has a high lacquer finish.
I had some fun with this project and can’t wait to try my new faux painting technique on another piece!
To finish off my project, I’ll be on the look out for one of these old ladders :-) to give my little cabinet a more substantial base trim. Wonder where I got this idea?
Who would have known this itsy cabinet had such a hidden charm!
It’s now a functioning storage cabinet filled with a vintage wire basket and wound bundles of burlap and cloth. Which emphasized all of its vintage beauty.

The super talented blogger extraordinaire and my sweet friend, has an affinity for rural French style. Her fitting design philosophy is to recycle and restyle found objects of desire. Ultimately, they find their way into the hands of a new place to rest. She is an artist in trompe l'oeil and faux painting. Her free spirit allows her to paint in her imagination with a dramatic artful passion for European flea market style. Her favorite time of any day is to be able to fit in time to create.
Her designs are natural and organic, and they reflect the textures, patterns, silhouettes, and finishes of her stunning artwork. I heart her faded grey palette it truly inspires me!
If you want to shop for some of her handiwork, visit Burlap Luxe Etsy Shop. I cannot recommend it enough! You won't regret it.
Her uncomplicated designs are all hand done.
