Garde manger

It's a very long time we (Paola and me) have this "garde-manger"...we bought it for LC at a flea market in Antibes last year but I've decided to work on it only few days ago...






















...I've replaced the metal net and repainted it...grey and white patina!

















The final look is shabby...holes and cracks make it charming and show its history...I adore imperfection!
Have a nice week end!
