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. 12715541_1057488137641977_347161151365489734_n

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 cant 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 to start with, and is solid wood, the drawers open and close with ease (YAY) and I am shocked that no one had claimed her yet.  I now refer to her 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. Painted Bombe Chest with Surprise Decoupaged Drawers by Just the WoodsShe’s been hand painted 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.Painted Bombe Chest with Surprise Decoupaged Drawers by Just the Woods

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?Painted Bombe Chest with Surprise Decoupaged Drawers by Just the Woods

From the outside, she’s soft and romantic, but on the inside she’s bursting with color!  curvy girl Painted Bombe Chest with Surprise Decoupaged Drawers by Just the Woods secrets, painted furniture, bombe chest, vintage, just the woods, staten island, nyc                    Painted Bombe Chest with Surprise Decoupaged Drawers by Just the Woods

I’ve been asked about my staging items/decor, etc so I’ve decided to share where I purchase the items that I use in staging my photos. Clearly I have a prop/decor addiction.
