I spotted this cute little desk last week while out treasure hunting - the second I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me.
I loved its cute retro lines and I had a vision that would make it even cuter.
Why on earth have I called this piece a Ship Desk? Funny you ask that...this is why ;)
It has a ship, delicately pieced into the desk top. I've never seen anything like it before.
As cute as it was though, it really didn't fit my vision.
The direction I took with this desk was inspired by the last desk I did, here
This one needed a top and I made a new planked one for it, which I distressed and stained.
I decided to do a similar thing for this new desk, to hide the ship.
This time, after I distressed and stained my 'planks' (new dressed pine from Bunnings) I painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in shades of blue, green, grey and white.
Here's how it looks now...
I've teamed the desk with one of the chairs from this dining suite and I think it suits it perfectly so I think I will be grabbing another chair like this and painting it Paris Grey :)
This desk is for sale, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
