Bright and Cheery Desk Makeover

Bright and Cheery Desk Makeover

Furniture
I always get excited when I get to do a custom order with a fun color. 
 I am a little hesitant to do a bright color on my own, however I do always love how they turn out.  
This desk is for a friend of mine’s daughter. They wanted it bright and cheery just like her room!  
I think it will fit perfect!  I used glass knobs on this piece to add a little detail but I didn’t want the knobs to compete with the fun color.  
I used Pratt and Lambert’s Myth of Old, I then used a brown glaze to bring out the details.  This piece top coated with a Poly Acrylic in satin!
I like to use Poly Acrylic on pieces that get more wear and tear.  A Poly offers a little more protection than a wax.    

I love how bright and cheery this desk is, maybe it will make doing homework a little more fun?! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

    I love this Pratt and Lambert color. Just beautiful! I would be glad to do my homework at this desk. I might even be willing to go back to school so I could have some homework just so I could use this desk. I am your newest member. I am looking forward to seeing what you are doing on your next post. Thank you for sharing! ….Candy
