I have been busy as usual...SMILES!! The weather has been somewhat easier on me and I have been able to get out and PAINT!!
I had purchased this old desk at a junk shop months back and it has been in my barn since...I finally dug it out and started sanding on it...
and then I realized it was just a real good example of a REALLY BAD PAINT JOB!! The more I sanded the worse it got...

Finally I just gave up and got out the Easy Off and let it do the HARD WORK!!
After they spent a little time together..my whole world seemed a little better...WINK, WINK... The sanding went along much easier and before you knew it...WA LA bare wood!!
I had a few small repairs to tackle...drawers and legs glued back...and that was just about it. I put it back on the cart and back in the barn it went...like I said before...my arm had to recoup...
When the weather cooled again...I got out my handy dandy cart (a gift from my wonderful hubby) it makes hauling things like this a WIZ!
I had found this Beautiful Turquoise (PEACOCK BLUE) paint and could not wait to get started.
I loved how the color turned out. I used the same hardware just updated with a Satin Caramel Metallic paint.
And finally I decided to transform a Ant Chair I had in my booth that had not sold...it was Ant white with a striped seat...I wanted to pair it with the desk so I found some fabric and that is what lead me to the color for the chair.
I think the pair go together perfect! The other colors, orange, yellow, pink, leave plenty of room for a very colorful room...BIG SMILES.
Well that is about it for me for now...I have a Antique chest of drawers I found on the side of the road and an Antique Cedar chest that I still have stashed in the barn...the weather is cooling...HOPEFULLY!!! so be on the look out...MORE TO COME!!...
