{Pretty painted armoire}


I love this space because of all the delicious layers. From the wallpaper with pretty roses, the soft window treatments and the smaller rose print shade, to the chippy dresser and the beautiful mirrored armoire with the layer of birds and cherry blossoms and a simple fabric chaise with a needlepoint pillow. I love this pretty room!!!
This armoire is my favourite piece! Does anyone know what this effect is called. I have never seen anything like this before. I wonder if this is painted on glass backwards and a mirror placed under, hmmm???
Au revoir

It looks like it is actually painted on the glass and the mirror silver over that. Then it has just aged to that lovely patina. It is beautiful,

France today offers the Country Furniture the unsurpassed accomplishments of her great historical periods, but is also courageously if often unsuccessfully, striving to bring into some useful form her glimpses of what shall be in future days.
