This is what i found yesterday, a Mathilde M little picture . This is the first one of a collection, well i will need about 6 of them.
The new blinds, I already had the curtains from Madura.
This is the 'fronton' I found at "Maison du monde" a good bargain, only 15Euros! I must get a second one(better hurry!)

This is what i'm going to use, you have a coloured base and a white light paint to make the wood look old.It's a "lasure" paint. You don't need any stripping  before you paint and they have nice colors. And there are no solvent in it.  I  met a first problem! i can't take the doors of the wardrobe , so i ask the carpenter to take them off! well it was a' on a budget decoration' i will have to pay for it ! it's not a good  start! Next time i will show you some more i hope! Have a good day! Catherine

Hello Catherine!
Isn't that the way it goes sometimes. I think we'll be finding that same problem when we start working on our cottage bathroom soon. Oh well..I know your wardrobe will look wonderful when you're done. Have fun!

Beautiful curtains and blinds...I am a big advocate of using details like the'frontons' we call them onlays; I like the french word better. (-: This project is very exciting!
