***Fair warning: MANY PICTURES!***
Though I was out of the re-purposing/refinishing loop for a bit, I was still trying to find time to buy great treasures. I have found if you look hard enough, and lady luck just happens to be sitting close by, you will find exactly what you are looking for! That is just exactly what happened to me Friday!
Here is my latest and greatest treasure! I purchased this from the sweetest Polish Babcia! She had purchased it for her grand daughter from friends who immigrated from Poland and France. I'm guessing it was the wife's as she was from France and it looks very French to me.
It is in amazing condition structurally. As you can see the desk top does have an issue or two. With it's age, there are bumps, scrapes, and rub marks on all three pieces. The flower paintings/decals? are good, but not great. Again the desk shows the most worn finish with the flowers completely missing from the top and the veneer chipped and missing. The chair, though very petite, is very sturdy as well as the side table. I simply am in LOVE with this set! I just don't know what to do with it though! Leave it alone? Restore it to nearly new with new veneer? Fix and paint? I just don't know!
Still in shock, I don't even know how I realized her other treasures! Oh the silver & antiques! And nearly everything was in amazing condition, with a detailed history of the piece, and from another country. It was like a little slice of heaven! If only I had the money to buy everything, I would have. I did walk away with a sweet little antique mirror and newish picture frame. But I wouldn't let her take less than what was marked!
Here's where you come in, my Friend! Your opinion Please! Tell me what you would do with this? Paint, fix, or what? Or, what you WOULDN'T do with this! I'm so excited to hear from you!
Sorry about the pictures! Think my camera needs some coffee :)
