Desk Makeover

I showed you this picture last time we talked …

Well now it has a new look …


A fresh coat of white paint a little distressing and a light coat of clear wax .

It now lives in my living room and I am sitting at it writing this blog .

Now I need to make a slipcover for the ugly desk chair so if fits with everything else in there .
Here is a little cabinet I found at a sale , it did have a wood finish , but now it’s white ( of course ) with a little touch of red to make the sweet vintage print pop .

I was going to take it down to the booth at Lovejoys , but my neighbor saw it and wants it , so it has a new home . Sold !


  1. Gorgeous desk. I love how you transformed it!

  2. I like it and I like how you put it in the room. I am working on one also and will post pictures of it. Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

  3. Hi Sharon, I like seeing all of your made-over furniture, they are really done nicely. You have a beautiful and interesting blog, but your photos are very small. I think it would be so much more reader friendly if you could find a way to make your pictures a lot bigger. Just a suggestion, I have clicked on them but I have to click and look at them one by one which is cumbersome. I hope you take this as helpful advise, I don't mean it in any other way. You really have a very nice blog and the content is very interesting.
    Hugs, Cindy
