French Country Cottage

If you’ve been the lucky recipient of  some French furniture that has seen better days, do not fret. In fact, count your lucky stars! The French Country Cottage furniture trend is still going strong and is currently the most popular style of painted furniture. Tired wood is given a fresh look with chalk paints, milk paints, and various distressing techniques. Paris grays, vintage blues, and creamy whites are some of the most popular colors chosen for this trend.
