Empty Nesters Update With Color!

Beautiful piece of furniture, but this couple wanted a new look for their more contemporary furnishings and new townhome lifestyle......
Painted this piece in Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint and a dark cocoa for interior. New hardware was also added in a brushed nickle.
I used shellac on all exposed wood as it was starting to buckle and crack. This really seals well before painting.
Painted inside of drop down desk in same color as interior of glass....I left the letter holders in the original wood tone.
Finished & placed back in townhome!
"After" :-)
