A couple WhiteBerry additions

And the card pull obsession continues...

But first I want to share this lovely antique french chair I picked up recently while auctioning with Rebecca. We were chatting away, paying very little attention (as per usual) when this guys comes up to bat and we both went silent! It was just so pretty, I can't believe I didn't scope it out before the auction started.

I was happy to see there was virtually zero interest in it (which I am sad to say wasn't the case for a beautiful old library cabinet I wanted...). The arms were pretty worn and it is obvious that it had been professionally restored at some point, but not recently.
So we went all white, then hand painted the body of the chair grey, leaving the cane work white.

I love all the carvings in the seat back.
Photobucket as well as the seat base and legs.

And while the library cabinet I had my eye on didn't come home with us, I decided to use the color and handles I would have used on it on this giant old dresser I had laying around.
Photobucket It is probably the single heaviest dresser I've ever worked with. With all 9 drawers out Sean and I still had to exert ourselves to get it in the house (or maybe it was just me).

It is a Thomasville dresser, whose furniture I have always loved so that explains the heavy-duty construction. My favorite part of the dresser is the columns though.

And my love affair with antique brass/grey combos surfaced again.

I think it might actually be the perfect length for this wall, so if it stays a while I will be very pleased (I know, I said that about the last one too, but it has since gone on to new horizons).

If I can find some time to breakout the camera this afternoon, I will be back with a handful of other newbies going up on WhiteBerry, if not see you tomorrow for Fresh Coat Friday!
