Every once in a while I get a piece of furniture that makes my heart pound extra hard. This is one of those pieces. I've never before wanted to name a furniture piece, but this one...this one needed a name. While I was working on it, one phrase kept repeating itself in my head over and over again:
"Let Them Eat Cake"
While the phrase may be ridiculously mean in the historical sense, the colors and sheer beauty of this piece made me think of France. Gilded opulence, sparkle, and excess - but oh so lovely!
Here is the before photograph
The detail makes me swoon! But, for precious Miss Scarlett it needed to look a tad more 'little girl'. A VERY LUCKY little girl. The vanity was glorious and even created envy in my 7 year old!
So I got to work and ended up with this:
Oh yes! It's pink inside!
That handsome boy peeking out was a great helper. It is West Texas after all and the wind wouldn't let that door stay open for the picture.
Now for the next piece for the darling little Scarlett. This has been so much fun!
