I think the snow is beautiful.
As I've mentioned before in other blog posts, this winter I've been trying to finish up projects. I just finished one of my favorites! A dear friend of mine gave me this amazing old beat up desk. It originally was a dressing table or vanity table. It's very old and the mirror is no longer there, since I wanted to use it as a desk anyway it didn't matter. I didn't mind that it was beat up a bit because I wanted a rustic french farm house look anyway.
First, I painted the area where the mirror used to be with chalk board paint and gave it a layer of blue paint topped with a white wash. I found some cute blue drawer pulls at hobby lobby(on sale of course!). I used the little foot stool as a chair (not very comfortable!)
And then...... I got distracted by other things and never finished it until now!
The next step was to scrape off some paint and then the final step was a very watered down grey wash.
I truly love it! I now consider it a treasure.
Another dear friend gave me this fantastic chair. It was originally brown so I spray painted it black.
I love using the chalk board for all sorts of things!
Have a lovely day out there!
