A Lady's Desk Makeover

I sold this sweet desk at Lucketts and realized that I never wrote a post on it.  This was another "trash to treasure"makeover.

I started with it looking like this.  I have seen so many of these faux painted pieces lately...the ones with the layers of paint in an attempt to make it look like wood...or something.

I chose Annie Sloan chalk paint in Versailles.  I love this soft green shade!

The inside was already painted red.  I just freshened it up with a coat of Real Milk Paint in Red and waxed.

I painted the knobs to match, but if I had to do it over again - I think I would have used stained wood ones, instead.

Much better!

I'm finally getting back to working on pieces for the shop.  It's so empty!  I have a load going tomorrow morning and more coming this weekend.

'til next time!
