French Provencal Dresser to TV stand
I purchased this vintage French Provencal bedroom set on Craigslist a while back (not the night stand on the bottom left though - I believe it is from Restoration Hardware - it is my inspiration for liming the headboard, footboard and night stand). I plan to revamp each piece.
I started stripping the dresser top first. The dresser will be a TV stand. Here is the inspiration for the TV stand.
Originally, I planned to stain the top a dark stain (Kona). After stripping the top, I think it is too gorgeous to stain a dark color as it is a beautiful light color and has great wood grains. Now, I plan to stain it a light color to bring out its natural color and beautiful grains in the wood. I will have to polycoat it though to protect the wood from the television, etc. The bottom of the piece will be painted in a dark turquoise to match the darker turquoise in this fabric - Covington Savannah.
I'll update more as it progresses.
