Man, sometimes my brain works triple time – this is one of those times. Today I finally “finished” a piece that I’ve already completed twice before. She started as “sea glass,” then in a flutter of late night, anxiety induced activity briefly turned blueberry blue, but as of today I’m pretty sure that we’re done. With a mix of old ochre for the body, old white for the drawer fronts and a natural top, I think she’s a petite, little beauty. I lined the drawers with this beautiful old school newspaper reproduction and I feel like you could walk into my great, great grandmother’s childhood bedroom and find this piece holding all of her dresses and lace socks. Not to mention, I was able to use a beautiful wreath swag applique from my grand-mother in law, Louise – it totally took it to the next level! So in thanks & honor, I’m naming this little darn cutie after her!
Louise la Petite is still available so if you are interested in welcoming her into your home, drop me a line!
