I have to say I stepped out of my comfort zone on this one (and the discouraging comment from the Hubs was no help).
When I first painted it in Paris Grey it just needed a little something more. So I mixed some black glaze, had a ball applying and removing it, then I distressed and waxed.
His comment you ask – You’ve muddied the paint – or words to that affect. Uh oh, but I thought it looked pretty darn good! After a fabric search (I am not a fabric person either!), I came home with three choices and we decided on this one.
Your turn to weigh in now – my partners seem to like it a LOT!

Looking around today, I found two gorgeous desks in very different styles but both are special!
We hope you like them too!
Glazed cottage white desk
This one is done in black and has a beautiful drop front.
The drop front closed
Nice, large work surface
And, painted to coordinate with the first desk, a French Provincial style chair with pretty pink seat.
Love the pattern
Have a wonderful weekend – ours should be very pleasant!
