You may remember this desk that I brought home like another stray pet. Unless an intervention took place, it was destined for the landfill.
My wonderful husband is the master rebuilder of bases that sit on wet curbs. He turned the rotted base into this:
I didn’t take a real before of the desk, but you can catch a shot of it here, after he replaced the base with good wood.
I paired it with this chair I found for $5.
It needed quite a bit of help, too.
After a new seat, new foam, and batting,
they are the perfect match.
I distressed the desk and chair and glazed them with metallic taupe acrylic paint.
(I borrowed the glaze color idea from my pal Lori.
at Projects Plenty when she did this gorgeous sideboard.)
I lined the drawers with a little fabric and decoupage.
The lucky girl who gets this desk will be able
to choose her fabric and knobs.
What do you think she’ll pick?
Cute and all pink?
A mixture of pink and black patterns? (My personal favorite.)
Or all out sassy zebra?
