I am so bad about taking before pictures. I know I am not the only one who does this, but it is so frustrating. Any way, this is all you get of the before pic, because I had already painted the drawers! My daughter and I found this lovely little desk at Sal's Army a few months ago. I originally was going to use it in my son's room that I was redoing, but ultimately decided it was too feminine. Plus, I found one that was perfect for him.
It has bow front drawers that make it so unique.
So here is after. I used Paris Grey Chalk Paint. It was so wonderful to not have to prime. Maybe even better was not having to sand like crazy before I started. I did love the chalk paint, but I already learned some lessons on the first piece. When everyone says it getsthick and you need to add water, they know what they are talking about. I just had a hard
time adding water at first, but once I did it was so much easier to work with.! It went on so
nice and smooth.
Of course I had to give her a matching chair. I just happen to have a few extras to choose from.
I love her simple but shapely legs.
The top side drawers are so interesting. They start out flat and bow out to match the lower drawers.
I used the original hardware and spray painted it with Krylon's Oil Rubbed Bronze.
So there she is! You can see her in person at Sentimental Journey Antique Mall
in Olathe, KS. if you live close by.
I love to hear from you and thanks for visiting.
