Yes, I do still paint furniture! It's been eons since I've posted a Before and After for Lather Creations, but I did accept one last commission before the wedding and she is now complete. Vanessa contacted me about working on this gorgeous solid wood writing desk she had been holding on to...and wanted refreshed with a new look. How sweet are those spindle legs?
The top of the desk was pretty beat up so after some heavy duty sanding and wood filler, I primed and painted the piece in CIL's Crisp Linen - a slightly yellowish white that looks perfectly antiqued. Some distressing around the edges and few coats of water-based finish completed the process. Vanessa chose a chic antique-looking Anthropologie knob from my collection for a little pop of sophisticated colour. The desk made me think of penning hand-written letters on the weekend to loved ones...isn't she pretty?
Hope she enjoys her new look in Vanessa's home office - thanks for letting me work on your special piece!
If you have an old piece of vintage or antique wood furniture in need of a fresh new Lather Creations look, get in touch. I won't be taking on new projects until September but we can definitely chat...email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a lovely day friends!
