Plain Jane to full of SUNSHINE!

I got this solid, yet plain and boring desk and had a great idea in mind.
It was missing two drawers, but I still saw potential.

I painted it white, and added a little design in the back with my overhead projector.

I just added some boards to the bottom to make nice shelves were the missing drawers were.

I just love how it turned out.  It has already sold from the store too.
It feels so good when your work goes to a new home!

Shabby Chic in Old White

Here is another quick redo.  I painted this old buffet in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint old white.
I spray painted the original hardware in hot pink for an unexpected punch
of color.  A little distressing magic and a coat of clear wax.
  It sold as soon as I took it up to the store.

I just LOVE this time of year.  
The weather is cold, 
Christmas music is playing 24/7, 
lots of baking,
glittering ornaments, 
and sharing ideas in blogland to make our homes beautiful for Christmas!
Cant wait to see your projects this week!!

NAVY love!!

I just love how this piece turned out.  It was a solid piece and a
garage sale SCORE!!!

I painted it with Annie Sloan old white and Napoleonic blue.  I LOVE this blue.
It is absolutely GORGEOUS!!  I did a little distressing magic.

Added some dark wax, and some cool vintage hardware.

It sold super fast.  I think it was only in the store a day or two. 
This is a very versatile color too.  It looks so different with no wax, clear or dark wax.

TGIF and Happy Weekend!

Monogrammed Desk

This was a special redo that I was happy to do.
  I did this for my sons tutor.  She is an awesome lady and
has gone above and beyond go help my sons.
She told me what she wanted, and I think it turned out great.
Its very classic.  The desk was in great shape.  I just sanded down the top, and chair top and added the monogram and then topped with Annie Sloan Dark Wax.

I painted the chair and desk in off white and distressed 
and then added dark wax.

Thanks again Robin for being such a awesome tutor and generous person.
Hope you are enjoying your desk.  I hope this project gives you an idea for
a personalized gift for someone in your life.
