A Beautiful Desk

I had such a great response over my craft storage I decided I must do another piece. Sure I SHOULD have waited until their are not 1 million other things going on around the house … but I didn’t… because I was in goodwill and found this piece:


How could I not get her? She’s so CURVY!!! She just needed a fresh coat of paint! Here she is all dressed up


Beautiful huh? She is painted with roller and brush in Ralph Lauren Roadster White. I decided to reuse the original hardware with this piece but sprayed it with a Rust-Oleum Hammered Spray paint in Dark Bronze.

Here are some of her details:

This shows some examples of choosing a TRULY good piece of furniture! This piece is solid wood with dove joints. A truly QUALITY piece of furniture we don’t see much of anymore!

So this piece took WAY longer than I thought it would and much longer than my china cabinet. i was ready to throw in the towel at a few different points. You see at first I used the rollable version of American Accents Heirloom White… I am pretty sure the paint was bad as even though I had Primed the piece the paint was easily scraping off. When I used the Ralph Lauren I had no problems… I won’t be using that paint again!!! I am glad it is FINALLY DONE! Now I can reclaim some space! :)
