The darker wood you see, are old doors found at The ReStore. They said someone gutted the kitchen of a local 1940′s home and donated what was salvageable …..really nice hard wood!
I confess I tend to become oblivious to time when I’m “working” in my Page 10 studio. You can see from these pictures how one
day night ended when I couldn’t seem to come up with the right legs—and I have a pretty good collection! So I, literally, went back to the books—my many design books, looking for inspiration. Perusing the pages of a few of my favorites, Swedish Country Interiors, London Living Style, and Great French Style netted not only an idea for the solution, but a better idea for its paint finish!
I cut and contoured base legs, added some 7″ sample corbels, fleur de lis appliques, egg & dart crown molding, and vintage hardware from the flea market. I painted it pale blue and creamy white, with gold leaf details, and a filigree stencil.
