Yesterday saw our biggest annual 'brocante' (boot sale), at the nearby town of Cazals. We are always on the look-out for nice things for the barn, and these doors looked just the job. When given a waxing they'll be beautiful.
They are solid walnut, probably late 19th C, bucolic Louis XV style, and in pretty good nick.
I'll get our chippie to use them for something.
I love those.....they're just beautiful!!! Old things make me very happy.ReplyDelete
Lovely, wax on, wax off.....better than a Jane Fonda workout xReplyDelete
I wonder where the rest of the cupboard went? They will look fantastic waxed up.ReplyDelete
There's a little worm damage on one door, so maybe the rest of the cupboard was made of pine; and was entirely eaten. I've already treated the 2 doors.Delete
Ooooh they're lovely...great find!ReplyDelete
Those are really attractive.ReplyDelete

I have never been to a boot sale either, Weave. However I am an auction room freak.Delete
Very nice, Cro! Please add a photo when they're in the barn all ready to go.ReplyDelete
I would use them as a bed head. They are a lovely colourReplyDelete
