Refinished Purple Desk

Refinished Purple Desk

Before and After, Furniture
My WONDERFUL friend found this cute little desk on Craig’s List for me.
I love all the details and the hardware is just beautiful.
It just needed some love, and life brought back in to it.
Here she is all done and ready for a new home!
I haven’t painted with chalk paint in a while and I was missing it.  This desk was the perfect fit.
 I love the soft purple with white accents and the newly painted hardware.



One of the best and hardest parts of taking pictures of a piece is staging it.  I am always looking for a wall to put piece furniture up against, and wandering through my house to find the perfect items to place on the furniture.  I usually end up rearranging my other furniture and scrubbing floors and so on and so on, it seems to have a rippling effect!  Most of the time it all needs to be done I just need something to make me do it!  But when a picture truly showcases the beauty of what you have created the messes all seem to be worth it!



I had a very cute assistant today, aka mini me!  She was sick and camped out on the couch, but she wasn’t sick enough to miss out on a photo shoot!!



This Desk is for sale if you are interested please see my furniture for sale tab at the top of my blog!
