A Big Girl Desk

My dear friend Jen who you may also know from her photography business, www.jenniferburnsphotography.com, was looking for a 1st desk for her young daughter.  She fell in love with this vintage desk. (And no that is NOT my Range Rover in the back round I wish!)

Before Picture

So she bought the desk and then I painted it with Annie Sloan Pure White and distressed it…then applied clear wax.  Here is the final product.  We will share some additional pictures of the desk “in use” once it is all set up in her room.  I love being apart of such cool events in peoples lives such as purchasing your daughters 1st school desk, nursery room set up, etc. Just love it!


The chair is done in Henrietta Annie Sloan Chalk Paint with clear wax


A lil' close up

FYI — I am considering doing a furniture painting Basics class at the end of October in the DC Metro area.  Email  me if you are interested so I can see what the interest level is … kelly@stylishpatina.com.  I’ll do a post just on this topic in the couple days.

    Awww – I would not have painted those amazing drawers though.

    I’m only seeing the before picture? Strange, b/c the after picture that popped up in my dashboard is what drew me over!
