A Fancy French Provincial Desk

French Provincial Desk After

Oh my goodness, I was so happy to have found this gorgeous little sassy desk on craigslist,  I see french provincial pieces from time to time, but they are usually too expensive for my taste, so when I saw this pop up right in my range, I snagged it right away. The thing with these french provincial pieces are they truly can go into any room and just spruce it up. The desk was a little dull when I got it, but I decided to go simple on this piece and just let the lines speak for themselves. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White using my Chalk Painting Process and the original hardware sprayed with a dark silver and brushed lightly with Old White.

What do you think? This piece sold before I even listed it, but if I had it for a minute, it would have gone just beautifully in our guest room. Where would you place it?

  1. I recently purchased an entire bedroom suite that appears to be the same make as your French provincial desk but I cannot find any manufacturer info anywhere. Do you happen to know who made that particular piece?

    1. Tyler, I actually believe it was made by Thomasville Furniture. I’ve come across a few pieces from there that look like this. I could bet you’ve looked, but usually their stamp is on the interior of a drawer. There could be a chance that it was on the backing and someone could have replaced it somewhere along the way. I bet the set is gorgeous. Hopefully that helps!
