I don’t know about you, but it seems like any time I come across vintage French furniture, I have to buy it. I can always find a way or another to re-purpose it. Dressers, chests and cabinets are great pieces to buy if you want to add pattern and turn it into a statement piece.
I have found zebra patterns to be so versatile. You can add splashes of color by mixing two like minded colors, such as an orange and a salmon pink together, or baby blue and cobalt, or go for creamy yellow with a pop of canary. Or you can go more traditional by painting it black, or staining the wood.
When I painted this dresser, I originally wasn’t planning for a rich wood effect. I believe when I purchased this piece, it had it’s original white and gold finish that you often see with French provincial furniture, so I simply painted over it. See how I did this piece here... http://hersite.info/my-sexy-faux-wood-zebra-chest/
