Every once in a while I really hit it big at the thrift store and find some amazing things. Last week I had one of those shopping experiences. In fact, I had to actually make two trips home I got so many great pieces of furniture. The only bad thing in the entire trip was that pretty much the moment the guys and I tried to load the furniture in my SUV it started pouring. And, I'm talking about in a matter of a minute or two I was completely drenched head to toe.
One of the things I bought that day was this amazing, vintage desk.
I love the lines of it, especially the curvy base!
Here's the before...it's fine, just kind of boring. And, I really disliked those fake hammered, coppery knobs. Really, really, disliked them.
I decided to toss the hardware it came with in lieu of these gorgeous, gorgeous milk glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware. The are perfect and vintage looking and arrived at my house just a couple of days after I ordered them. They're really awesome, right?
And, I love how the milk glass looks against the dark paint of the desk. I recently discovered this color, called Fired Earth by Valspar and it will, for sure, be in heavy rotation. It is much less severe than pure black and is just this gorgeous mix of brown/gray/black all rolled into one. Love it!
I pared the desk with this chartreuse chair covered in a Suzani print. Don't you completely love these colors together?
The chair and the desk will be for sale on Saturday at my house...can't wait!
