A Transformation

Remember that 'Secret Project' I posted about like, a gazillion years ago? It took me long enough and is still a work in progress, but I would like to present my first 'flipped' furniture. :) From this avocado green secretary desk from my aunt...
To this! Honeysuckle White with aged finish, metallic blue interiors and Marigold Orange drawers, inspired by some picture in CottageLiving. (Oh, how I love those marigold drawers!)
Wouldn't some Anthropologie knobs just top the whole thing off? If there were only a way that I could concoct my own that were just as nice....
Now onto the bed frame. And no more aging finishes for me...that was sloppy and stinky and not so necessary after all. Hoping that the next project turns out better, I'll take more step-by-step photographs. Wish me luck!

It's awesome...and so beautiful (much better than avocado green lol) Do you ever feel like "so many projects, so little time?" I know I do!
Peace & Love,

Oh, wow! That is so pretty! Where did you find it?

I have a little roll-top desk painted in a similar white, but we bought it.

Blessings,

@ Barb: Hehe! YES I do! One of these days I *will* learn to prioritize better and get more done faster! ;D

@ Breezy: Thanks! :) My aunt gave it to me...it had been sitting in my grandaddy's living room for ages, waiting to be used.
