French Provincial Fab Refresh

A friend of mine described them as dingy and blah.  She said with these pieces you need to totally change the look or leave them alone.

I decided to take this one from French Provincial to French Fab.


French Provincial Fab Refresh - Before


two toned french provincial - painted furniture makeover at Refresh Restyle

Instead of distressing, I dry brushed.  Because who wants to see that blah before color coming through?

Painted Hardware

I painted and dry brushed the hardware the same color as the drawers.

I think it looks much better.

  1. I love your dresser! I have one that is super similar that I would like to create something similar to yours for my baby girl’s nursery. The only thing is I asked my brother to paint it white while I was pregnant and he made a mess of it. He used a sander and did not use the same tension so it looks crazy. It’s hard to explain but I could send you a picture.Do you have any suggestions? I would appreciate any help since it came from my grandparent’s house and I would love to have it in their great grand-daughter’s room. THANKS!!

  2. I love the dry brush look,

  3. She’s très magnifique! I had a similar set growing up – this is shades better!!

  4. She looks marvelous!! Love the hardware 🙂

  5. Love the colors! I’d definitely say she is FAB now!

  6. How do you ‘dry brush’?

  7. Debbie, you had me at French Provincial! I just love the lines and making them pop with the green drawers just makes it even better!
    Love it!
