Desk

Sometimes, I have so much to share, I don't know where to start.  I've been resting up, organizing, and finishing projects that were near completion.  Plus, estate and garage sales are really starting to open up in my area.  I've already made some finds. So, you're about to get quite a few posts.  First, here is the desk my figural candle stand is sitting on top of.








This old desk was pretty rough before, and missing knobs.  I didn't want to change too much about it, just spruce it up a bit.




Two coats of slightly different shades of white on the base, followed by a little distressing.  I added different knobs, and gave the top a dark stain.




Done.








 See ya very soon.

First of all you find great stuff and then you make it into gorgeous stuff!

i just love this! it's so unique with the varying drawers. and the dark top/white bottom are perfect!

Sayuri said...

Very nice!
I think your creations are great because they look naturally aged, which I find very hard to replicate.
You do it so well, great job, Rosemary!

I really like how you left the wood top on the desk. Your styling with the white accessories looks so good on top.

Really lovely, Rosemary. I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, too.

That desk is so cute. I love the asymmetric drawers and how your treatment brought that out.

You always score the goods Rosemary. I love the desk. Glad to hear you are taking it easy, yet being productive...How does one do that? You probably are not full speed like you were. Have a great weekend.
