Charming French Blue Painted Shabby Chic Antique Bedroom Set Featured At "Finder's Keepers", Southington, CT

Pretty Painted Antique Furniture 

Thought I would share with you a fabulous looking Shabby Chic vintage bedroom set I spotted a few days ago  at "Finder's Keepers" in Southington, CT. This ensemble was professionally painted French Blue with Cream accents.

1930s Painted Antique Dresser 

The dresser appears to be 1930s, but the night stands while painted in the same French Blue color are probably later. I am guessing from the grill work on the night stands that they were 1950's pieces.
But the set is charming. There is as dresser, mirror, two night stands. two twin bed headboards  and a wonderful chair.

Finders Keepers: Quality Consignment Furniture

Father and son Larry and Chris Kelleher,  owners of "Finders Keepers" only take in excellent quality consignment furniture as well as some new brands. While I was visiting both gentleman were quite helpful and very gracious. They have been in business a long time and are a good source for both buying and selling furniture.
