Its cute in an ugly sorta way..the flowers on the drawers were even painted pink with green leaves..very cutsie.
I had bought a can of "oops" paint the other day from Home Depot (sidenote: I cannot freakin wait for Lowes across the street from my HD to open! HURRY UP already! Yeeshus!)
I thought this can was A) a light gray and B) Latex....It was neither. Really not sure what happened there...
In anycase, I realized both of these things when I started to paint this desk..The color is a light beige-y shade....not my color strongpoint at all, and oil....fugg. The only color I have thats in oil is a gun metal gray from The Mister's desk project (Here) and the dry brush idea I was toy-ing with wasnt really my favorite for this piece...I didnt want to over-due details with anything too intense or handpainted since there was the flowers on the drawers already. I distressed the whole thing and glazed it all up with a metallic bronze to add some very slight shimmer....Now, my style doesnt let me just leave it there..no,no,no,no. It neeeeeded something else...something jazzy and pazzazy BUT not overdone...and I had the perfect vintage floral paper to add! Colored up the hardware, which were already just the perfect style and clunky-ness and Viola! I LOVE LUV her...I want to keep it for myself forever and ever and ever
This project kinda came together on its own..I never stumbled for idea's or colors or design..It seems I just looked up and it was done perfectly...Sometimes, its so easy..and sometimes those are the best ones...
Sadly, I have to sell her...She's too "girly" for my Bunny and I ready HAVE a desk..Unless, I sell that one? Mmmmmmm..
