My Long Leggy French Chick!

3 Days
Easy

She showed up this summer in the back of a pickup truck a cast off from a local yard sale. She was kind of beat up and rough around the edges but I loved her long legs and knew she had potential. I gave her outside two coats of Old White Chalk Paint® and painted the interior and shelves in Provence. The stenciling was done in Graphite. Behind the lower doors she got two coats of Paris Grey and then Clear wax and a lite distressing overall. I opted to leave the glass door off and transform her into an open shelving unit for books, china or mini Eiffel towers! As soon as I find the right knobs she will be ready for her new home.
