Vintage Green Desk Makeover
As silly as it sounds, I had a hard time falling asleep that night because I was so excited to get my hands on this desk and dig into a new project! I woke up early yesterday and started on it, and finished by midnight! This was the first big furniture revival project I have completed in one day, start to finish, which left me feeling really accomplished, motivated for the next project ..and really tired!
This desk & black chair will be on display and for sale at The Living Room Coffee House, located on Cameron Street in Eau Claire, Wisconsin , I will be delivering it on Wednesday February 5th.
I decided to give this desk a whole different feel that the original white and gold , and make it more masculine vs. feminine. By doing that I was stepping myself outside of my comfort zone, of my typical 'painting curvy pieces with feminine colors' and also giving myself a little challenge, to see if I could pull it off!
How I revived this piece of furniture:
- 2 coats of 'Preppy Green' Paint
- 2 soft layers of black stain + polyurethane
- Drilled holes for pulls & added different drawer pulls, originally off of antique dresser
-Map lined drawers
-1963 rustic Wisconsin Farm license plate bolted into the side of the desk
-Signed on the back + a quote (my own extra little touch I place on my furniture pieces)
-Black chair is painted with Rustoleum metallic accents paint with a light layer of black stain + polyurethane.
Here are the results from a long day of reviving this beautiful old desk! :

Love everything about this desk makeover. What a creative eye you have...love the green tone with antique feel. Great idea to line the drawers with maps, so fun. Excellent job all the way around!
