Bowed drawers, serpentine lines, cabriole legs, ornate hardware— are just a few of the characteristics that define french provincial furniture. The imitation pieces that were popular in the 60s, 70s and 80s are in my opinion perfect candidates for transforming. I’ve been aching to flip a french provincial dresser, and was elated when Leah inquired about me painting her piece in a charcoal grey. The idea screamed french country farmhouse to me, and I couldn’t wait to get started!
Before & After
French Provincial Dresser
Leah requested a charcoal grey, with slight distress, stained top, and decoupaged drawer sides for her french provincial dresser makeover.
