Mama's Desk

Pin It
My mother bought this very same desk from the unfinished furniture store when I was young. 
She stained it walnut, gave it a coat of poly and it became "her office". Her sanctuary. We were NOT to touch "Mom's desk."

Last week I found its doppelganger in Newport, RI at a yard sale.

I picked up some rubbed bronze bin pulls at my favorite big box store and gave the desk three coats of Annie Sloan's "Arles" paint- a color I've been dying to try out.

Here is my version of my mother's desk.

I LOVE how it turned out and hope you do too!!
Have a great weekend!!

  2. I love how it turned out. Love the combo of yellow with turquoise! I came over from Southern Hospitality and am a new follower. Love DIY makeovers!
