Sweet Petite Roll Top Desk

Hello everyone.  I have been away from blogging for awhile now.  I took a fabulous vacation, and I'm ready to get back to work now.

I found this adorable petite roll top desk at a flea market.  It was an oak reproduction from the 80's and it needed a whole new makeover.
It got a coat of my favorite white paint.  I left the hardware and the brass rail on the back in their natural state.
The hardware really popped against the white.
Here is the before picture.  This piece was destined for the thrift shop for sure.  The white paint really revived it and gave it a whole new life.
I'm happy to say this sold in a week's time...just in time for back to school.

Thanks for visiting.

I may be partying at...

It was a cute little desk before, Maggie, but now it's a pretty little desk. It looks very refreshed with its new paint job. Such a great size, too.
