We don't always build in Creole and Acadian design!!  This is a very contemporary piece made in walnut.  Pam Perret, Interior Designer here on the Northshore, designed this table many years ago.  We only just built it recently.  The top is in a chevron pattern.  The round apron is made with veneer that was made here in the shop with the original matching material of walnut.  I love this table and didn't want to see it go!!Here it is in Pam's Living Room.

This large piece is called a Creole Vaisselier Dresser.  It is finished in a custom paint with a dark stain base with a chalk paint overlay.  The chalk paint is then rubbed through to expose the dark stain underneath.  It is then sealed with a clear top coat, waxed with our standard French wax and buffed.

This piece is an interpretation of  piece built in New Orleans in the early 1800's.

The dimensions are 8'h x 6'w x 21"d.  It has adjustable shelves in upper cabinet, three drawers with hand cut dove tails and three doors with adjustable shelves inside.  It is a beauty!!!!!!
