Painted Desk and Headboard
We have been busy today working on some projects around the house. My daughter is using the front living room as her bedroom. It has french doors seperating it and we are going to close off the wall between her room and the dining room. It is painted a brown and she is using turquoise as an accent color. We have only begun working on it so this is not the finished project, just a peek of what we got done today. The headboard is our old coffee table. It had one leg that we could not keep from wobbling no matter how much glue or nailing we did. We sanded it slightly and painted it. I found the paint in the OOPS section at Lowes. We then glazed it with a brown glaze to antique it
This old desk is one my husband brought home from work many years ago. It was painted brown when brown wasn't in. I painted it the green color and glazed it. It has been the best little desk. It is small enough to move around and fit in many different places. This is the before picture.
Today we sanded it and painted it with the same turquoise as the headboard and glazed it. We also painted a chair that we had. We are going to recover the seat on the chair.
