You probably recognize this from a post I did this week on Aubergine Emporium. Today it is getting it's very own post since I wanted it to attend Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Friday link party. This piece, although beautiful, was very formal and needed some repair. It had heavy gold metal trim and was a natural wood piece. The detailing on the piece is incredible and very French. As I said before, I think it would be wonderful in a powder room with a raised basin. The antiqued glaze really brings out the detail. Now it's fit for a queen. I have to admit, when I find pieces like this, I can certainly appreciate their beauty, however, they are a bit stiff and formal for my decorating style. I also would totally shy away from a piece like this if there was any damage to the metal trim. Certainly painting the entire piece a uniform color, disguises any imperfections very well and now it adds even more character.
