Curvy Girl With Secrets Bombe Chest
Staging / Home Decor:
It seems those warm days of December are behind us and the bitter cold has hit us here in New York City. What’s the weather where you are? It was a whopping 2 degrees this morning and 27 the other day when I ran to storage to pull a piece from inventory.
Here’s me taking a little stash shot selfie on a cold and windy day. (Can you tell I turned 40 this week? eeek) And can you see all the pretties behind me? A little cold can’t keep me away! haha. I had a few days until my next custom was being dropped off so I pulled out an adorable, curvy bombe chest that has been patiently waiting for a makeover.
She’s got great curves, is solid wood, and the drawers open and close with ease. I am shocked that no one had claimed her yet. She is now referred to as a curvy girl with secrets. Sure, she didn’t have any secrets originally but she sure does now!
I was so involved with her makeover that I completely forgot to take photos while I was working on her. It really takes a conscious effort to remember to take photos sometimes when you are completely wrapped up in a makeover.
Now, she’s finished in shades of soft grays and whites. Believe it or not, there are actually many layers of different shades of the grays and whites on her. I didn’t want perfection, but rather an elegant, shabby chic feel. You can get a similar look using this gray and this lighter shade of gray.
Inside all of the drawers have also been hand painted a smokey soft gray. But it’s outside of the drawers that are truly special!
Each drawer has a different french print, the ones that are in my secret stash. The origin of my little prints are my little secret.. every girl has to keep a few secrets, right?
From the outside, she’s soft and romantic, but on the inside, she’s bursting with color!
And those curves.. those curves, you can’t really have a bombe chest without curves.
