No, I didn't spell it wrong--it's French, of course. ;)
We wanted some of the hardware to be the same to tie the two pieces together. I loved the shape and size of the bottom pulls, but they were the wrong color, so I spray painted them and then rubbed a little paint in the details and gently wiped off so they would show.
I seriously love the legs--dry brushed the whole piece, going heavy in the "creases" and then did a lot of sanding to keep it light. It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but I like the subtlety of it.
BTW: I have arm muscles I never knew existed from all the sanding I've done! I guess it's a great way to tone up! :)
