Let’s start with the desk. I found this beauty on Craigslist, but about a 2 hour drive away. That didn’t stop me, Olivia and I hoped in the car and make the trek. Some of you might be wondering we I would paint such beautiful wood desk. Well, it was a struggle for me to make the decision. I even considered just painting part of it and leaving the rest it’s natural wood. But, the truth is, it was in pretty rough condition and I would have had to refinish it, so I decided to take the risk and paint it coral. I’m so glad I did. I love this desk. It is sooo heavy and well made and has an amazing shape. It is perfect for the space.
The side chair I found in an antique mall. I paid only $20 for this sturdy little school chair. My client is a teacher and so I felt that this chair would be so appropriate. It had a great shape, but is was rough. I think everyone that had ever sat in it had carved their name into it. But, with some good sanding, primer and a few coats of paint, this is one of my favorite things in the whole office.
I really enjoy giving furniture a whole new look. And with spray paint, you can have results in just a day. You’ve probably seen this color scheme appear on my blog a lot lately. I can’t get enough of it.
