Farmhouse Meets French

I love the styles of both farmhouse and french, so I put them together and this is what I got...whatcha think? The look all came about with the use of paris grey paint/clear wax/dark wax...oh sooooo easy! I covered the seat with a piece from a burlap feed sack and I'm so lovin' how her makeover looks. If you don't think you can mix and match different styles...well I say you can...go for it...I think you will be happy with the end results. Here at Coastal Charm I have several styles going on...COASTAL/FARMHOUSE/COTTAGE/FRENCH are the main ones you will find here...what's your style? If you have not joined in at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY...it's not too late...we are still partying...so come on by and join us.
                                   Love having you here,
                                             Linda

                         My goodness...a makeover can do wonders!!!
                             Now look at her new seat!!!

Pretty back too!
                                All she needs now is a new home.
