{Like Old Again}
Recently I acquired an old wooden desk. My neighbour was going to put it out for garbage but I insisted on giving the tattered table a new home (I love a good makeover and this was the perfect before and after story!) Like old grapes turned into a beautiful bottle of wine I have big plans for this little desk, after some sanding and a coat or two of paint, it will look just like, well, old again!

{The Desk}
Similar to the one below, my desk is made of wood with chipping black paint, bamboo trim and 3 deep drawers.

{The Finish}
This is the antique look I am hoping to achieve after sanding and painting the old layers away.

{The Colour}
A classic, Martha Stuart's Robin's Egg Blue.

{The Hardware}
Vintage knobs from Anthropologie are not only fun to choose, but each one is as beautiful as the last.

{The Accessories}
Picking your favourite flower and showcasing them in a clear vase is a great way to accessories your tabletop.
