{vintage} chest AND desk

We found a chest & desk set and although they were a bit dated, we saw potential! They both had a waterfall top and a vintage Art Deco feel.

We envisioned light aqua and are quite happy with the finish selection.


We decided to add a bit of extra character {and leg room} by altering the front of the desk. Tyler sketched out the area he wanted to remove & cut a beautiful shape into the desk.



He’s so talented!

IMGP5292Amy purchased this Peacock Blue nightstand from us & took a peek at our inventory when she came to pick it up!

Luckily Amy was at the top of our list for needing the next desk we came across & she loved the lines on this one. IMGP6244


She decided on Antique White and it turned out beautiful!





IMGP6474We love the legs, curves and fluting on this desk. Quite a bit of character without being too bold.

It is solid wood and has great construction.

The finish has a bit less glaze than we’ve done before and we’re very happy with the finish.

Gives it a bit fresher feel, which we love!

Enjoy Amy!
