Wedding Shop - Desk Refurb

I've been out scouting - a customer with a wedding shop wants a stylish desk.


I mean, think about it - if you're in a wedding shop wouldn't you want a desk that's a little more romantic than the average utilitarian design?


I've been out scouting and found this dressing table.


The long legs and curved drawers are great features.


I removed the mirrors and gave the whole thing a few coats of Roman White and then shabbied up the paintwork.

 Just enough to bring out the curves and flourishes...


Those curvy legs have been given Antique Gold boots :-)


The handles have been coated in Antique Gold enamel.



To finish, the whole desk has been given a coat of satin varnish to protect against knocks and bumps.  Next stop, the shop.  Can't wait to see it set up with the phone, flowers and diary.
