French Provencial Bench

     I just have to show this collaboration effort. It was done before I discovered blogging, so there are no before pictures, but it's easy to see what went on. My friend, Kyle, had this king-sized headboard he didn't know what to make with. It is French Provencial with framed wicker panels. He normally curb-shops, but he waited this one out at a thrift shop for only $5. A short while later, my daughter dragged a French Provencial coffee table in off the curb and the two pieces landed close to each other. As luck would have it, the Wisteria catalog arrived and on the cover was a beautiful French Provencial bench, that we drooled over and - "hey wait a minute!"... If you put the wicker panels on top of the coffee table, there's the bench!!! The ochre color was a mistint and the cushion was made from a thrift store curtain. Perfection!!!
