A Different Look for the Lil French Buffet

 

I can’t be trusted to leave things in the same place very long.  You all know what I’m talking about.  Sometimes you just have to move things around.

I was going to sell this French plate rack with the chalkware cherub topper, but I decided to see what it would look like in my dining room.  I added a little brown transferware and  just put it on top of my little French buffet that I had redone.  You can read about the metamorphosis of that piece here.

I think this was taken with a flash and a different camera than the first photo.  I use this huge art piece “girl with the bird on her shoulder” all over my house.  My daughter painted it.  I taught her everything she knows.  Just kidding.  Actually, she taught me how to have fun painting.   Sometimes I copy her.  What’s she going to do?  Sue me?   Actually, she says she loves that I copy her.  We copy each other.

Back to the buffet, isn’t it interesting how one thing can change the whole look?
