Love these school desks!! There are two of them and both are in great shape. They have a pencil groove as well as an ink well hole. There is a small tray under the top. One has a broken piece of a hinge but it works great. Beautiful used as decor, child's desk, on a porch to hold plants and seasonal items, repainted for a modern flair....

I have pics of the desks and have also included some ideas to get your creativity flowing! They are available as is or I can help determine a new look for you and refinish them.

Crackle White Wash. My client found this beautiful dressser and wanted to lighten it up, but also enjoy the beutiful graining of the wood. We used a combination of a white/gray wash, creamy white, and leaving the beauty of the natural wood grain. The crackling was unintentional, but worked out beautifully. You never know what can happen with working with antique furniture!

This fantastic piece came to me painted a solid white. My client wanted to bring out the fantastic details and add some depth. We layered on some light gray and added some distressing. I love the character of this piece!

This secretary was in good strucrual shape, but needed a transformation to fit into a rich, rustic decor setting. We warmed it up by layering turquoise, red, and glaze. I loved working with all of the character in this piece. Now it has a great place in a sweet home.

This cabinet belongs to my client and friend. She wanted a new look to work better in her beautiful dining room. We used a cream to lighten and brighten and a light distress to bring bring out the character of the piece. Now it pops on her red wall. (there are rumors she is replacing the glass with chicken wire - fun!!)

Next project! This little dear is already two days into her transformation. Such character and details! Veneer has been taken off the top and it left great nooks and crannies for glaze to settle in. Very sturdy old piece. Thinking it would be beautiful in red with dark gray details and glazed. If you are interested, send me a message. If you catch me before paint has started, I'll work with you for a custom color palette if you'd like something different.

By working within the same color palette, this curvy little side table and buffet are now a "matched set." The buffet's blue accent was pulled out for the body of the side table. Both tops were restained using the same dark walnut color. Even though they are different woods, they now share a common coloring and work together beautifully. Laura Hendrix, Enjoy!

This wonderful buffet was beautiful to begin with, no repair needed - yea! However, it just wasn't what my client was wanting. We were able to play with color samples and come up with a combination she was excited about. We also stripped off the old orange-tinted stain and changed it to a dark walnut. I love the combination and all of the character in this piece! Laura Hendrix, thanks for trusting me with your treasure. You are such fun to work with - Enjoy!
