Private Spaces "Les espaces privés"

I have added these bench~stools I design to my Burlap Luxe etsy shop, and along came a custom order request from a beautiful buyer asking if I could custom paint something on it as I do to my signs, of course my answer back to her was, "I would be happy to".

Leaving something as it is, to then get an order letting it take on whatever would greet it.   

"ELLE DORT"
Was her order, and a request to add my sweet wild bird and its resting twigs.
This bench~stool is going  to be set along side a bed, a step up to a quite, calming, and restful place of dreams.

ELLE DORT... A beautiful French phrase for, "She Sleeps"

I just love this phrase for a step up to bed.
With painting layers of exterior paints, and hand rubbed coats, after coats of matte finish sealer I am assured this art will last until it is no longer in need.

A bench painted for, private spaces
"Les espaces privés"

A stepstool bench that soothes the soul makes a beautiful rustic accessory in a bedroom, charming its reach with a feminine touch.
"Touche de Féminité"

Pictured at the foot of my daughter Hannah's bed before shipping it off.

 Quoting an etsy feed back from the purchaser...

"Dore is awesome! The bench is beautiful. She took an ordinary bench and turned it into a piece of art. I can't wait to get another thing made by this wonderful artist!"

My darling Doré,

One day soon I HOPE, I would love for you to make a sign for me that says,

ON MANGE BIEN ICI in the exact same color. Oh how lovely you make the simple colors come to life with the aged patina of French sensibility. THANK YOU MY DEAR ONE! BRAVA! Anita

What a beautiful custom piece. Everything you touch has such serenity.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

The work of your hands is lovely and the stool made more so with the sweet phrase.
A question for you...would hand wax application seal the wood as well as the matte finish sealer?

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

You have absolutely beautiful things. Love the step stool and the beautiful words on it. I would love to climb into bed looking at that stool every night. Have a wonderful week.

Dear Dore,
First, I am so sorry to hear that Hannah has been sick.. I wish her a speedy recovery.. You make sure YOU get enough rest, don't want you getting sick.

Thank you so much for sharing the story about Violet the mouse.. Nice to know about where some of my little ones have gone... I am so happy you enjoyed my mice and buggy. It would have been lovely to have you with us at the ocean..
You take care, give Hannah my best.

I have your sanctuary sign in my bedroom and still love it! It is such a peaceful sign to look at after hectic days at the office, reminding me I am, at last, in my sanctuary.
