I’m delighted to reveal my writing desk redo.
Here is the before. This antique writing desk has been stained a light brown and was in very good condition. But it just didn’t fit in with my other furniture.
All I had to do was give it 2 coats of white chalk paint, sanding in-between and then distress and polish.
All the handles and hardware were removed prior to painting. I decided not to paint the inside of the bottom cupboard because I liked the darker wood contrast.
I also added some of my favourite aqua polkadot contact to the back of the shelves.
And, the drawer.
Then added some pretty trinkets.
I also decided to stencil this gorgeous quote to the inside of the lid.
I know it will make me smile every time I open the lid.
And now I have a gorgeous vintage writing desk!
