Red Desk Makeover – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends,

How’s your week going? We’ve had a really nice one here. I could talk family and fun trips, but I want to talk design and work for a bit. It’s been a great design week for us! We booked our first kitchen renovation project. It’s going to be complete with Retro style appliances, chrome accents, shiplap, and subway tile. Oh yes friends! I’m excited about this! Here’s a little color board to show you some of the designs. I’ll do a new post with more info about the products we’ll be using, but couldn’t help but share a sneak peak! Screen Shot 2016-07-23 at 1.06.47 PM

I also am part of a collaborative design effort for a new coworking space that’s coming to Troy called The Troy Innovation Garage. We will each be creating an office to showcase all of the designers in Troy. I love working together with other creative minds in our city. I’ll be sharing more information with you about this effort as well. Here’s a sneak peak to one of those designs:Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 10.30.34 PM

For this week’s furniture makeover, we have a really unique desk that desperately needed a makeover. Here’s the before picture:

We painted it with Benjamin Moore’s color Exotic Red, heavily distressed it and glazed it with Rustoleum Antiquing Glaze, and finished it with a satin clear.  If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. We also replaced the hardware for that extra pop with the design.

Ready for the after?
