Meet Adelaide, the desk

Meet Adelaide, the desk.

She was a little on the drab side before we met.


But this little lady has deep ties to France.


Born in the United States, she has many first cousins heralding from the sweet town of Evreux, north west of Paris.  Although never visited, she is saving her pennies to visit one day.


She loves all things French:  eating croissants at the local cafe, proudly draping a Chanel bag over her shoulder, sharing bordeaux wine with friends, watching every movie starring Gerard Depardieu (before his escape to Russia, of course), and often enjoying a read from her vast collection of Victor Hugo novels.


This lovely came to me from a family member who thought I could brighten her up.  Adding my own recipe of chalk paint, I added detail to make it look like a vintage grain sack.  She is coated in polyacrylic to seal it all in.


Dimesions are 43 1/2" wide, 17 1/2" deep, 29 1/2" tall.


If you would like to add some worldly charm to your home, you can find her at Robin's Egg in Milford, NH.

Have a fabulous day,

Debbie
