Back in April I shared with y'all an ornate french writing desk that I had purchased. I was super giddy over it!
|A few weeks back I shared this sneak peek of it on my blog FB page. I had just finished with a crackling technique.|
|Well here is the long awaited reveal! It is100% finally completed.|
|I just loved all the ornate detail that this desk has and knew once I painted it it would pop out even more.|
|The desk has one drawer.|
|It went thru several layers of paint and distressing.|
|I love the time worn feel it has now.|
|I sanded down the top of the desk and put new stain on it.|
|The desk has carvings on all four sides which you do not find often.|
|I call this the back of the desk but really I guess it could be the front.|
|I used my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on this piece. Let me tell ya I was working on and still am working on a custom buffet that I used latex on. I have not really used latex paint in over a year so it actually kinda scared me even though that use to be all I ever painted with. All was fine with it but honestly it just reaffirmed my love of chalk paint.|
The Hubster is madly in love with this desk. He wants to keep it and put it in his office. Not sure why cause I think its kinda girly for him but I won't tell him that!;) The office is already completed and by replacing his desk with this one will totally throw off the entire room. Sadly enough I think I will be selling this piece. We just have no room for it. I have tried to see where I could work it in anywhere in our home and it just won't fit. Sorry honey!:( I am truly honored though that he wants to keep this piece for himself. It will be a hard piece to let go.
I have been working almost non stop so I will have a few more reveals coming up soon!:) Hope y'all are doing well and thanx so much for sticking with me and stopping by to visit even though its been very quiet around here. I appreciate all of you so very much!
