Furniture Friday - the cute little Desk

Desk or vanity with homemade chalk paint

This cute little desk was a piece that I had hanging around for a while before I knew what I wanted to do with it

It belonged to a sweet man who said it belonged to his Great Aunt

I fight with myself sometimes about painting furniture, is it the right thing to do?

It's worse if the piece is perfect looking, like this one

I wonder, is there going to be a whole new generation of furniture bloggers a few years from now stripping all this chalk paint and distressed paint work off these pieces and calling us names while they do it? I think so, for sure

Even so, I decided to make my own chalk paint for this one and to distress and antique only the drawers and the top

Here is a rare photo of me painting

Tartan tastes in Texas

It turned out looking great, all beachy and bright

  2. LOL...Look at it this way...We're giving that next generation something to write about. I think it turned out just beautiful too!!!
