Meet Jaqueline

...


I know, most people don't name their furniture, but I thought she was so charming she needed a name. She just looks like a Jaqueline to me, with her curved bottom and long thin legs.



When I first saw her she had a terrible paint job but I knew I could make her pretty again. I picked a caribbean blue and removed her charming knobs to spray them black.

I think she looks just lovely now.

  19. Yep. Jaqueline is perfect. And looks perfect against that beigey-brown wall. Perfect color, and the black hardware just pops!
