We recently painted this cute little cabinet that I currently have for sale at The Red Apron.
When I got it, it looked like this.....
Yikes....she was an ugly little thing!
So we painted her, glazed her and I decided to add my "Italian stencil" to the front of her.
I loved how these chairs turned out so much....that a reuse of the stencil seemed in order.
I thought it turned out so well!!!!
So I showed off our little "Italian cabinet" on Facebook.
And wrote this blog post about our amazing "Italian chairs".
And oh by the way..... I sold the amazing "Italian chairs" to an Italian family who I am close friends with.
And then.................... I got blog comment from a sweet blog follower who pointed out....... "your stencil is French". WHAT??? No way!
So, I sheepishly texted the new owner of the chairs (who is thankfully a friend). And she confirmed that yes.....my stencil is French. She just must not have had the heart to tell me.
So I tried to go back in time to Mrs. Fertig's French 1 and French II class....
And to my French field trip to Quebec, Canada.
I really do remember a few French words....more than just the cuss words I swear!
But I don't remember any of these words.
Nonetheless, why did I think it was Italian????????
I should be hanging my non-bi-lingual head in shame.
And yet I'm not. Cuz' it's still stinkin' cute.....in any language.
Thank you for not judging me on my litte faux pas.
See.... I still remember some French!
