I’m normally not much of a “blue” person, but every once in a while it just seems like the perfect color! Case in point…this little desk.
When I picked it up at a thrift store, it had seen better days. You can get a little hint of how scratched and faded the top was here…
It had this little chair sitting with it. Although they were not really the same style, it fit perfectly, and I kind of liked the contrast of the streamlined desk with the pretty turned legs on the chair. I didn’t notice until I got home that one of the dowels was missing, but it was an easy fix after drilling out what remained of the old dowel.
I used the navy blue paint leftover from my office project (Sherwin Williams Naval, BTW). I had originally planned on staining the top, but it wasn’t cooperative to that idea…ever have a project like that?
I brightened up the pulls and the metal trim on the legs with some Rub-n-Buff (love that stuff!), and the seat got a bright new fabric.
I had cherished some hopes that this little desk might actually stay in our office; I imagined it floating in the middle of the room…however, I wasn’t crazy about it when I tried it out. I don’t think it was big enough to fill the space.
So it went home with a sweet young woman who was going back to school. It was fun to enjoy it for a little while!
Thanks to Knick of Time for featuring this project!
