I’m so excited about how this beautiful piece has been revived and restored! Hope you like it too!
The bones of this desk were all in tact, it just needed a little loving care! I enlisted the help of my handyman (hubby) for this job! He spent some time out in the 104 degree weather sanding down this piece for me! Hey…wait a minute…I tackled the drawer!!! Anyway…it’s a good thing we have a pool to go jump in and cool down after jobs like this. The desk was just so pretty that I decided to just re-stain the base in a dark walnut and only paint the front with old white chalk paint. I then went to The Graphics Fairy for inspiration regarding transferable graphics. I chose the Printers Ornament with Crown for the drop down leaf and the Paris Address for the drawer. I used the Blender Transfer Method for both of these designs. I was very fortunate that the pulls were still in excellent condition and could still be reused.
The ”Before” shot!
I can’t wait for the Buyer of this treasure to come pick it up today so I can the reaction on her face. I hope she loves it as much as I do! The last time she saw it, it was piled high in my garage and pointed at it and said “I’ll take it”. She could see all the potential it had.
