French White Doll Furniture Painting Art



I purchased a doll bench at a tag sale for 1.00 and immediately wanted to paint it a french white. My french white colors mixed are beige, white, green and blue.



All winter we will dream about roses so I painted on an oval surrounded by roses and buds. I'm not sure I am finshed yet as I want to age it a bit more. Do I want to add something to the two bench tops like balls? or birds?




This is the before picture. It is cute, but it doesn't match our decor. I always worry about putting the before picture in case someone likes it better.



One idea always produces another...so these are going to be book plates! I could put them in all of my cookbooks.

Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to see all of the other white wednesday posts at the Faded Charm Cottage.
