A Whimsical Makeover: The Unique Desk Edition

Every once in a while you find a piece of furniture that makes you swoon. You dream about where you are going to put it, what color you are going to paint it and how it will change your life.

And then you sell it before you even get it home.

That was my experience with this amazing desk. While I was selling at the flea market, I took a break to do some shopping and found this desk. It looks unassuming from the outside but unique on the inside. Each drawer was rounded. I had never seen anything like it!

I have seen desks with one or two rounded top drawers but never all of them.

Yahoo!!! It was going to become mine. I started dreaming about a Whimsical office makeover. It was going to be lovely... until and super nice mother and daughter team came along and fell in love with it as well.

After deciding that it should belong to them, we sat and discussed custom color and finish choices.

Here is what they chose:

 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Country Grey with Clear and Dark Wax.

It turned out lovely and I hope they enjoy it. 

Thanks for checking in. I have a lot of new decor ideas and furniture coming your way very soon.

FYI...I purchase my Chalk Paint from Carter's Cottage. :)
