I found a desk with 2 broken back legs at the Flea Market this week. The seller did not want to deal with the desk so she gave it to me. Love that!
This desk has great lines and I love the curved front drawers and delicate legs. The wood is not real inlaid wood so I had no problem painting this desk. I wanted to make it more Frenchy so I glued on a few appliqués that I ordered from Doityourselfchic.com. After they had dried I painted the desk with home-made chalk paint in Mills Spring Blue by Benjamin Moore. After distressing the edges I sealed the paint with hemp oil/dark wax.

I am loving the desk now!
