I'm not sure if I'm the only one who experiences the shopping phenomenon:
feeling that can sometimes come over me in a shop - be it clothes, shoes, bags, homewares and of course, furniture...I'm not?!!
Didn't think so ;-)
Well it happened to me last week when I saw this desk -
I just love the simplicity of this piece and I got that feeling...so after a quick vehicle swap, it came home with me bursting with potential.
I didn't yet know what I was going to do with that potential, but a quick trip to mitre 10's paint section gave me the inspiration I needed. I came home with 5 color swatches and I ended up surprising myself with the color choice.
I have never used this color on anything before, but...holy guacamole batman...I think it works!!
It even ties in with the second footstool I did (which didn't even enter my head until I was photographing this!)
Ok, some deets:
Top - Refinished then beeswax - of course!
Paint color - Wattyl - Aqua Infusion (made into my DIY chalk paint)
Finish - Really light distressing then sealed with beeswax.
Hardware - Original
Both of these will be at the Makers' Christmas Market this Saturday December 1st 9.00 - 1.00
