A few months ago, I purchased a can of Duck Egg Blue chalk paint from Stifel and Capra. It sat in my garage just waiting for the perfect piece of furniture to bathe itself in. As luck would have it, I was fortunate enough to collect a few things from a family friend. Her family was in the middle of a major renovation of her father-in-law’s charming home and they were looking to unload some things. I picked up an amazing chandelier (which I’m almost finished refreshing), a mirror that has seen better days, some old books, and a sleek desk. This is what the desk looked like when I picked it up. Please excuse the iPhone picture.
Check out that shag carpet and wood-paneled walls! It just screams 60’s. The desk is a little retro and certainly different from what I’ve worked with in the past. I saw potential in her and decided to give it a go.
Here was a perfect opportunity to test out ASCP Duck Egg.
This is with the first coat:
Here she is. New and improved with two coats of paint, clear wax, distressed and finished with dark wax and new hardware!
I can just imagine this piece in someone’s study with a sweet upholstered chair or even in a baby boys room as a chic changing table!
This unique desk is now for sale in the “Shop” section. Please let me know if you’re interested in adding this desk to your home! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
