Here is the finished vintage linen chest...at least I'm calling it finished for now. I am still debating on whether to add words on the front of each drawer, in a faded black print...maybe French words for tablecloths, napkins, bed linens? Or numbers, either written out in English or French, or simple numbers themselves...?
The reason I am not sure if it needs more detail work is that I am not sure I want to keep it in my booth space at Camas Antiques, let alone sell it. I am working on my fabulous workroom currently, and it could be an amazing addition to the room. It could hold papers, or fabrics, or who knows what all else, and looking spectacular all the while.
This is one of the challenges of being a professional junker. It's always the same...do I love it too much to sell it, or do I put it in the booth so my space looks fabulous, and I earn some good money? I am always torn.
I adore this piece. So versatile and functional and charming, even if it is missing one drawer and the cupboard doors. Perfect, in a tattered kind of beautiful way.
