Shabby Chic Chateau Armoire

 Source unknown
This image is all over the internet~I have always loved it
and the elements in it give the room its style.
Imagine the room without the armoire wouldn't
be the same.  Some things make a statement, and I have
just added a piece to my shop that fits in that category!
 Chateau Armoire, custom made and done a limed pecky cypress finish.
It towers above the armoire next to it~at 7 1/2 feet tall its quite the beast!
Did you ever wonder how these things end up in shops....take a peek.
 I had to hire a couple of extra guys just to off load it 
from the truck to the shop.  Justin, on the right, came out to 
the Malden shop to help me get this piece in. 
They all listen as Picker Paul gives out instructions
to how they are going to move this massive 350 pound piece. 
 Paul is at the far end while the three guys handle 
the base and slowly slide it off the truck.
 It gets into a standing position and then they have to hustle it into the shop~
Paul is barking out the orders and all seems to be going smoothly.
(Insert grunting noises here)
 Once in the shop some adjustments are made and voila~
 Paul stands next to the piece to try to show the scale of it~he is 6'3.
Paul went to the auction and he tried to tell me this might not be the piece to get
due to its massive size~and the potential damage to his back!  But I am in love
with anything French or Gustavian in nature and this piece just had to come to Maison Decor!  It was custom made and is the highest quality.  Its in excellent
shape and ready to transform a room with it's elegant French country style.
Here you can see the limed wood with the pecky look~yummy!

Come on down and take a look before its gone~!
