About us


I'm Leslie.   I'm excited to share my love for all things French, secondhand, and painted.  It all started with my desire to create a French-inspired, sustainable style for my home.  After I discovered there wasn't really one place, I could go to find affordable and sustainable décor, I began curating high quality, second hand, vintage and antique home decor and furniture I could use to create my unique French Farmhouse/Cottage style.  To create just the right French old-world look, I began painting furniture and quickly fell in love with Dixie Belle's Chalk Mineral paint.  I became a retailer for them and soon added Redesign With Prima products as well.  I combined my love of all things French, art and secondhand to create le French hen.    

Here I share with you my love for all things vintage and painted!  It's been a wonderful four years and look forward to many more.  Please visit our Elite Dixie Belle boutique located inside Midtown Mercantile Merchants in Tucson Arizona and our second limited DBP Chalk Mineral Paint location inside KWD Ranch Decor Co in Benson AZ.  I love talking paint so contact me and I can meet you or give me a call.

Thank you for visiting my website, supporting small business, and shopping secondhand.
