Teal Distressed Antique Desk with Re-Finished Mahogany Top


My inspiration for this next piece comes from the colors of these doors I had pinned on Pinterest.  Blues, Greens and completely blended...reminds me of the ocean. I would love to travel and see all these doors up close and personal, but for now, I just tried to imitate the look with this desk.  It was so fun to do and I think it was important to re-finish the top and stain it. 

So, here it this extremely well constructed desk. It's a beast, I tell you...ready for 75 more years of livin;)

This is not a custom, so it's available to purchase on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.
