A friend of mine brought me this desk to be painted. She had found it in her mother's things in storage ~ it originally belonged to her father, who is sadly no longer with us. So not only was this a great piece, but it was very special to this friend & her mother.
This was a while back, when it was still 300 degrees outside, so I painted this piece in my kitchen. I don't know if you know this, but if you ever want to ruin your husband's day, let him come home to find you in the kitchen, covered in furniture & paint, and blocking the fridge. Good times.
Once the piece was painted, I sent her a number of options for hardware. Here are a few:
She chose the sleeker, oil-rubbed bronze option, as seen here:
This piece is special also because it is finished on the back ~ you can't find many like this anymore.
I love it when people send me pictures of their pieces in their new homes ~ so I have fun pictures like this to show you!
have a great day!
