I got this desk at my local Restore on a recent trip. I loved all the detailing on the drawers and sides. The back was also finished and had such pretty lines. The picture below shows the top stripped partially and all the hardware removed.
And TADA! Here she is after!
I painted it in a Palladium Blue mistint from Lowe’s and I am in LOVE with this color. I then distressed and glazed it using Ralph Lauren Smoke. The top is stained dark walnut by Minwax. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out. I bought new hardware at Home Depot, and it made it more current.
I love the back of this piece… It would be a great room divider…. The glaze isn’t as streaky as it looks in this shot.
This piece sold quickly, and I was so happy to see it go to a good home! I get attached to all these pieces! They’re like little kids! LOL!
