Oh, This Enormous Solid Wood Desk!

This was a beast of a desk, friends.  My sweet friend, Gina, found it a garage sale and asked me to paint it white for her.  She bought a new home and has gone back to school.  This piece gives her a perfect place to spread out and get some work done. I love the finished look!
I called her after I started painting it and asked if I could add a little "Dionne" to it:)  I could not resist painting those little feet a soft shade of turquoise and I added the knobs from Anthropologie. She was happy to let me as long as I didn't get too crazy!
She loves her new desk, too!  This piece will be around for another 60 years for sure.
Have a happy week, Everyone!

Herringbone Crush

 Friends, if you haven't seen the Serena and Lily catalog, you must order one! They have beautiful home accessories and inspiring photography on their pages.  I chose this herringbone pattern after thumbing through the pages. I love textures and the patterns especially on bath towels and rugs. So, I had to give this a shot, my way off creating a fun modern look for this vintage Bassett Mid Century dresser. 



This piece is for sale on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris.
