black french provincial desk

This sweet little desk had been hanging around my house waiting to be refinished for quite some time (I starting having visions of refinishing it for our bedroom!).  Alas, it found a home along with the vintage wooden crates and shabby chic shelf for a client to give as Christmas gifts to her little sweeties.  I lined the drawers with the same cute polka dot paper I'd used on a few other pieces for her.  The desk will be used by a girl and boys, so I replaced the swirly vintage pulls with simple black metal knobs.  (Forgive the pics...low natural light these days. ugg.)


vintage wooden crates

I tracked down these vintage creates to use as shelving for a client for her boys' room.  I scrubbed them down and sealed them with water-based varnish.  They're versatile and can be arranged on the wall similar to how they're stacked with space between for additional shelf area...or can be hung on their sides as bins for toys or larger books.  I love the old mandarin orange labels on them from the 70's...Oh the days when packaging use to be sturdy and reusable!

shabby chic shelf

This cute solid wood shabby chic shelf was a find for my client's little girl's room to match the antique high boy dresserantique bed frame and antique french provincial side tableI painted and distressed it, and added glass knobs to match those on the dresser and side table.  Keep your eyes peeled for more cute shelving to come...lots of fun ideas brewing.
