My post on friday about the stunning apartment in NYC featured a gorgeous old Italian handpainted side table that made my heart sing.
This led me to scroll through my files and find a bunch of images I had to compile into a love dedications post.
I am completely head over heels in love with pretty handpainted furniture old and new and especially of the French/Italian floral variety.
Pammy's bed for example, is just about the most beautiful piece of furniture I've ever seen. I turn green when I think about the lucky lucky bugger who purchased it, probably for a steal, at her recent yard sale ;)
^This is the bed I dream for my daughter :)

I would dearly love a piece of my own but without the $15, 000 price tag lol. I'd be more likely to afford a nice piece like the one above. Lovely old queen anne style dressing tables sell all the time on Ebay, if only I could find someone to paint some lovely floral details, it'd look just like and just as beautiful as the real deal. Miss Kris why don't you live in Sydney?! hehe ;)

Does anyone own a gorgeous piece of furniture similar to the ones I featured? If so I would LOVE to see a pic. Also if anyone know's of a place I could find one for myself I'd be ever so grateful to be pointed in the right direction :)
