Ugly Duckling Makeover .....

I still have the paints out today ... but I've switched gears from boots to furniture ... Here's a "before" shot of a petite dresser I worked on. I know what your thinking ... "Why bother!?" .... because tomorrow is the French inspiration party "VOILA!" over at the French Cupboard blog I host EVERY Thursday ... and ... well ... I needed something to blog about!!
Would you like to see the "after" shot ? ... well, you'll just have to join me tomorrow at The French Cupboard ... and, if you want, bring something French inspired you'd like to share!

What?? 
You want a little sneeky peek? Okay, okay ... but, this is all you're gonna get until tomorrow ; )

Hope to see you there !!

  11. Ugly Duckling no way!!
    Loved the outcome! I also love to strip some of the veneer off leaving the rest to sand smooth then paint giving it the old water stained look to it! I love what you have done with it, would also love to know where you placed it in your home :)

    see you soon, keep inspiring us all with your perfect brocante.
