French Coast

By Cindy Collins, Owner, Designer at Romancing the Home at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford, GA.

Being from Atlanta, when I think "coastal", I am reminded of the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast and its casual atmospshere and relaxed setting.  Other times, I am called to the faraway coastlines and beaches of France with their formal and romantic surroundings. Introducing "French Coast", this buffet and mirror already had great legs and curves and was just waiting for its moment in the sun.  Lovely Coastal Blue was selected for the base and mirror.  Gold leaf paint was then applied to the classically appointed details including the legs, center medallion, and hardware.  Top coat was applied to protect the finishes.  Bon Voyage!
