I had a customer see it and wanted it before it was even painted. A great thing since she can pick out the color before it goes on the piece.
It started out the usual white with gold trim.
It has a top hutch
It also has a drop down desk on the bottom piece.
I painted it in a two-tone dark and light grey. I left all of the hardware original.
I highlighted the details in the carvings with dark first then dry brushed the grey.
I found this oval frame on The Graphics Fairywww.thegraphicsfairy.com and transferred it to the front of the desk to add some interest.
I didn't want it to be so ornate so I adjusted it to be a little simpler.
I hand-painted the inside of the pattern with the dark grey and added the customers last name initial to the center. Then I distressed it so it look like it had been there awhile.
I waxed the desk to give it longevity.
I love the way it turned out! It is a piece no one will have in there home!
