Do you ever yell, “S T O P” , while driving with your hubby . . .
~ ~ when you see an antique shop or a “sale along the road” ?
I do, and I must curb my enthusiasm, as I many times cause him to panic.
While driving through some back roads in Virginia . . .
~ ~ we came across an antique shop and an outdoor sale in front of the shop.
I thought I had taken a picture of this desk when we unloaded it a while back . . .
~ ~ but apparently I did not . . . so “bad blogger protocol” set in with no “before picture”
The drawer fronts are veneer and had some wear on them . . .
~ ~ the top was actually fine, if it were sanded and re-stained.
So I thought with this “paint configuration” I would go with the painted top and drawers.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
When we got this desk home, I discovered that it was made by Thomasville Chair Company . . .
~ ~ later, Thomasville Furniture Company – Thomasville, North Carolina.
The desk had wood casters that were in perfect condition.
I love the detail of this desk, especially the fluting and shape of the legs.
I guess I could have painted the entire desk, but loved the beauty of the stained wood.
It rained most of the day . . . and while there was a break in the rain . . .
~ ~ we quickly brought the desk out to the driveway to take pictures before it went off to the booth.
I can also see this being a pretty vanity with a mirror hung above it.
I am hoping this desk will be going to a great home, as it deserves lots of love!
Have a great day . . . as it is a wonderful day . . . because it is the day my sister was born!
Happy Birthday Betty Ann!!!! . . . Love you sis!
