Why I love living in France..

One of the reasons that I adore living in France is because you sometimes fabulous treasures like these chairs. There were 4 available and I purchased 2 for my new bedroom.

The plan is to clean and wax the wood and then cover the seat with antique linen. The other 2 are looking for a home but am sure that they will not be for sale for long.

.......a la prochaine....
