Marketing campaign Desk Makeover | Centsational Type

You possibly can see the unique paint job on this older publish. I acquired this desk from a thrift store, it was a fortunate rating for $40. I like marketing campaign type furnishings, the inset distinctive brass {hardware} is what does it for me.


I used the identical paint as I did once I initially refinished this piece, it’s the Benjamin Moore ‘Advance’ formulation which is the most effective for cupboards and furnishings. I sanded the highest and drawer fronts then gave it two coats of recent paint in ‘Clay Beige’.

The brass {hardware} solely wanted a easy polish with metal wool and Brasso to convey it again to life.



I redid the wall in my studio (in progress) that I confirmed earlier this week. I changed the rattan chairs with the desk, painted the cabinets gold, and swapped the artwork for vintage botanicals from my Etsy store.
