Empire Desk Makeover – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

How was your week and weekend? We had an epic week, redoing about 20 furniture pieces. Man oh man was that a good thing, but by Friday night we were definitely ready to collapse! Thankfully we were able to enjoy some awesome family fun this weekend, from Harvest Parties to dinner with friends. It was reinvigorating and we are ready to jump head first into another hard work week which features some unique designs!

Before we get to furniture, I want to share a couple of pictures from a family photo shoot we just had done.

This week’s makeover is so pretty! We started with this antique drop front desk (circa 1930’s) that had beautiful wood grain but needed to be brought up to date style wise. Here’s the desk before:

We painted it with Benjamin Moore’s color Simply White, medium distressed it, and sealed it with a protective clear coat. We also darkened the drawer fronts so they didn’t have as much of an orange hue. If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. Ready for the after?
