It's been a while since I've been painting furniture as we have been away for so long on school holidays - more posts to come about our great trip to Queensland recently. However today I'm sharing a lovely French Provincial writing desk that I made over yesterday.
I have just painted this in classic white. I was tempted to do a harlequin pattern on the top like I have done previously here, but in the end have left it plain.
This lovely desk started life as a dressing table.
It's solid walnut but i really don't like the stripey wood.
The mirror wasn't in good shape so i was going to remove it anyway but I accidentally smashed it before I even left the auction house. Lucky I'm not superstitious. There is the piece of glass for the top available.
...and here it is now all ready for sale. With my new french style pinboard that I'm loving.
I spent today at the furniutre auctions, got a few lovely things that I'll be painting later this week. Now all I need is a shop!
