Story about this desk: Bought this 10 years ago. My sons used in their rooms at different times. Sons all grown up now---desk is mine. If you flip through the catalogs of Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs; they have had desk's similar to this one (structure wise) painted black or white.
THE PLAN: Remove the "masculine" hardware/handles---sand and paint (will be cottage-white); add new drawer knobs. The whole room is in the process of being repainted soft white and tan; my area rug is tans/browns with bits of faded aqua and creams. Black painted wood floor.
I'll show pictures when completed---I have too many projects going at once; plus I work---so will take awhile to get all finished.
Below are some other finds from this week:
Some orphaned glass-ware: Looks nice on a big sliver platter; idea to hold white candles; pretty for a Christmas setting----add vintage silver balls--
Big! Jewelry box for $1.30!! Love, love wood boxes of any kind; this I plan to paint. The lid lifts up for storage too; see the cute little drawers! Mirrored back on each side behind the doors. Sweet thing.
Darling little knack shelf---
Pretty vintage tablecloth with blue flowers for 1.00 (background): vintage reticulated large tray for .50 and the glass "cloche" was an orphaned dome lid for a bowl---got that for 2.50---but, fits sweetly on this tray; a pretty way to display little collectibles or some "bling".
I pick up trays/metal baskets all the time--will picture my loot of those items to show you how serious I am about finding metal-ware! I love to create display pieces out the these; will get some completed and picture soon.
THANKS FOR BEING HERE! LEAVE ME A POST---HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
