I’m back home and loving the norm! Laundry. Diapers. Dishes. And DIY! I don’t have all of my photos from the trip downloaded and sorted, but I do have a lovely child’s desk to show you.
Meet Charlotte :)
Charlotte is a vintage waterfall child’s desk that had some major exterior damage. Her bones are good, including solid dove-tail drawer construction which makes for the perfect piece to paint and bring out the
The color is a custom mix somewhere between an apple red and cranberry. Two coats of paint, distressed, and finished with Annie Sloan Dark Wax makes for a perfect pop of color! A little polish on the original hardware and she looks like she was meant for this color.
Combining the right distressing techniques with the dark wax finish makes this piece look like she was painted 50 years ago and aged with time.
This little desk is cute as can be! She could easily be used as either a work desk or a vanity with a mounted mirror (which I believe was it’s original purpose).
If you’re interested in this piece, she’s available for purchase in the shop.
Lots of love,
