I have been looking for a desk to make a vanity for quite some time. I was scouring Craigslist and came across this beauty. I got to see a different part of Atlanta when going to pick this guy up!
So I took some gray paint I already had (you'll see that featured in another post) and made it darker by adding some black paint that I already had. Sanded down the desk to take off the chalkiness and applied - 1 COAT! I was so excited it only took one coat ;-)
Here's the piece now...without the cool handheld vanity mirror I recently got from one of my favorite antique dealers (hint: my sister!)
I'm in love....and I think this will be a piece I move with me and use in different ways in different houses - we shall see!
