French Love Song
I love her to death, I love her to death
I was nothing before, still I stand here today
As a keeper of dreams 'till the night fades away
I love her to death, I love her to death.
I started with an old washstand - white with stenciled country roses.
Well-made and quite sturdy.
Nothing to do but decide how to redo this beauty in the rough.
Yes, you do spy a blooming hydrangea behind it.
I am ashamed to say this was taken back in August.
Sanded her down and stored her in the living room awaiting inspiration.
Around about September, I started painting her Vintage - that Americana Chalky Paint color.
Finished the top and drawer.
Stored her in the living room.
Around about the middle of December I had to move her from the living room to put up the Christmas tree.
Stored her in the dining room.
Around about last week, the weather turned quite spring-like.
I would finish painting her.
Alas, it was Sunday. Hobby Lobby was not open, and I had no Vintage paint.
However I did have Krylon spray chalky paint in ivory.
So I sprayed her and sanded her smooth.
I had ordered some new stencils from Maison de Stencils.
One was a French Love song.
How perfect for Valentine's Day!
Notice how crisp the stencil is cut.
The stencil is created from thick sheets.
I love them!
I used French blue FolkArt craft paint.
Then sanded the heck out of it.
Looks great with the Vintage color inside of the drawer.
A pretty piece suitable for the bathroom or bedroom or wherever.
She came with the tempered glass top.
The glass is slightly blue.
She has been delivered to Booth C-23.
You can buy her for your Valentine - $125.
