This desk was a test of my patience. I tried. I painted her a fun, bright yellow.
But it wasn’t meant to be. She wanted to be moody, gray and distressed. The age of the piece can sometimes dominate any plans to bring it into another decade. It just wasn’t happening. She reminds me of 1870’s and 1970’s bohemian influences. I love the idea that she was used for creative uses her whole life, and now she needs a new place to be useful. And now that she has a new coat of paint (and stain) and snazzy new handles, she is ready for action.
And it turns out that the yellow paint wasn’t wasted, because when I distressed the desk, a bit peeks through, and coordinates so amazingly with the Anthropologie handles. Perfect!
