Hey folks, this is my 1st attempt at furniture decorating etc. My charming child Lily has very Frenchy style tastes in regards to the style of bedroom furniture that she wanted. I bought these antique mahogany book case, armoire & dresser & mirror off ebay for only $76-, some nutter had listed this furniture from $1- start bid, he had no idea the value of them, seller only knew that they were he's grandparents & that they had been sitting wrapped up in sheets & dated 1951 news paper in he's grandparents "unused horse stables" since the 1950's. The furniture is all hand carved out of solid mahogany. I don't even have a clue as to the value of the antique furniture. Lily's like me & doesn't like natural timbers, we like painted French style furniture. My oh & i sanded the original stain paint from the & i re-painted in french white & gold guilded the fret works, the original glass was not in good condition & was re-placed by my OH, the original brass door knobs were ugly & i re-placed them with new crystal knobs. Next project will be a frenchy style antique double bed restoration job for Lily.
Mirror legs yet to be painted, Lily just couldn't wait any longer & wanted the mirror in her room asap lol.
I also re-painted this lamp base & hand beaded all the swarovski crystal beads on lampshade.
Thankies for looking
