Before and After - Baby Pink Desk

This mahogany desk languished for ages in my to-do pile...I guess other more exciting projects kept pushing in on it!

Here are the 'before' photos...

After priming it with BIN, I sprayed it with a baby pink Resene paint called Cosmos.

Here it is, all finished...
The retro office chair is also one of my recent projects, but I still have to paint the chair frame white.
I LOVE the glass bling handles!
I chose not to distress this piece, which was very unusual for me...I just felt this piece needed to be kept simple and pretty.

  4. So pretty, Karen. I just finished a piece that I chose not to distress either. I agree...some pieces are meant to be kept simple. Love the crystal knobs! Pink and crystal knobs are so feminie and pretty. One of my favorites!

  6. Aw, it's precious!! The knobs are AMAZING!!

  7. It's super pretty with those knobs and that floral chair Karen - nice job! (you gotta know when to distress and when to go solid!)


  8. It's wonderful Karen, what a transformation! From a piece most people wouldn't look twice at to a pretty functional piece of furniture to use and enjoy. Love the chair too!

  9. Love the finished product. The glass handles really add a nice touch to the desk.
