Farm Life Best Life

I’m so flattered that you’re here, and grateful for any interest you might have. I’m FAYE FOSSAY ~ Farmwife & Mum, Website Creator, Furniture Artisan. My family and I live, love and work on our farm in the heart of Manitoba CANADA — amidst wide-open spaces, cattle grazing and heart-dropping prairie sunsets.

When I’m not at my computer crafting websites, you’ll find me in my workshop happily restoring salvaged furniture — transforming sad and bleak to farmhouse chic. It’s a creative outlet that allows me to relax, unwind, and embrace sweet imperfections.

Grand Farmhouse— Antique Empire Buffet

Grand Farmhouse— Antique Empire Buffet

Most certainly the grandest piece I’ve had opportunity to restore and transform to-date! An antique empire buffet that swoons magnificence from every angle and view. Extremely solid, sound and spectacular— transformed in a sophisticated, bold and dramatic almost black deep green— a shade that holds subtle bronze undertones for a confident, everlasting look. Dry brushed with Bronze Metallic for added depth and dimension, and sealed with Beeswax Finish for a soft satin protection. The top has been stained and sealed for a lovely two-toned wood exposure. I do indeed envision this notably striking antique in a charmingly grand home— a statement piece that will undoubtedly settle in the most perfect space impressively.
