Vintage waterfall desk

Sometimes, when I see a piece of furniture, I swear I get visions. I saw this waterfall desk at the D.I. in Logan, and in my mind, I saw the drawers, all lined with this snappy fabric from Hobby Lobby. I've decorated the playroom around this fabric, and I can't get enough of it. The only question was what color to do the desk. 

I played with the idea of red, but when I saw this paint, I knew this was the color. I wanted the fun lines to really pop, so a black glaze was in order, and my favorite drawer pulls to pull it together. I could see this piece finished in my mind before I got it home. I couldn't wait to start!

Luckily for me, it turned out exactly how I envisioned. With only a few minor reinforcements, this beauty was better than new! 

This piece is SOLD!
