This poor little darling...
was headed to the trash bin at a thrift store.
Just in the nick of time my friend Carol showed up
and it was given to her.
She in turned passed it on to me...
Thank you Carol
I think maybe it had a leather top
and a back cubby that was missing,
with all the nooks for letters and desk supplies.
I just had a new top cut to cover up her past,
and head her onto her new life.
She took a little cleaning up and sanding,
and two coats of primer to keep
the wood tannins from seeping through.
Look at her now!
After mixing a few left over colors of chalk paint,
a lovely grayish green,
accented with Old White.
This chair was looking for a partner,
so was the chair pad I found at a favorite consignment store.
It just needed a little color to the top of the desk
to bring the three together...
this Royal Design Stencil is another favorite,
it gets used a lot!
Adding a little of the grey & blue to the
drawer pulls and she is a done deal!
She is headed off to Cerro Home's
new and improved larger space at Urban Barn,
fitting in very nicely I imagine.
Enjoy your week...
