Here’s the Bee Happy Desk and chair.
Something tells me it truly is happier now than it was when it looked like this…
It was very structurally sound. I liked the idea that it wasn’t real “heavy” with the right side being open. Seems like it would make a perfect laptop desk.
Since the top was some sort of laminate, I decided to cover it with some vintage book pages and a few fun images of bees and a crown.
The existing hardware was pretty bad….SO…I got four wood knobs, painted them and added the bee detail.
I painted the main body of the desk with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Old White,
Then I painted the drawer with her Provence paint. I finished with a couple coats of clear and then dark wax on the drawers.
The small chair was also painted in Provence and I used some of the floral fabric in neutrals.
Thanks for stopping in to take a look at this desk makeover. I am in the mood to transform more “lost” pieces…hoping that the yard sales are lucrative this weekend.
See you soon …
