Roadside rescue Free desk and free chair Redo

I don't know if you remember a few months back while on the way to Church, I had grabbed this
old deskette...just sitting on the side of the road..waiting for me. But here it is.

It was a old dark pine solid wood desk. It was beat up bad so I had to wood fill the top a little and give it a good sanding, but other than that, it was perfectly fine for me..:)

I sanded it down just a little since I had used some wood filler on it, then wiped it down with a damp cloth. I then got my new favorite addiction from my bloggy friend Shelley over at Shizzle LLC.
Cee Cee Caldwell's paint. EEEK...I was so excited...I have never BOUGHT fancy paint like this before, but I wanted to support my fellow blogger and try something new.

I have to say I am in LOVE....I had this old chair that I had gotten while camping in Pentwater. You can see that Redo Here....I had wanted to match the fabric colors on the vintage seat.  Cee Cee's had the perfect match. Destin and spring hill green.......LOVE!!

when it was done, I went over it with clear wax and a cloth and buffed it just how I wanted.
I then put on the new Hobby Lobby knobs and love how vintage and lovely it turned out.

I hope you enjoyed this and have a BEAUTIFUL day!.

Looks great! I wish I could find some furniture on the side of the road like that. I love the colors you used.

I love roadside rescues! I have a WOOD dresser and nightstand {beautiful shape to it} that I found almost 10 years ago. They have to be my best roadside score! They've already had their 3rd coat of paint since then.

I'd love for you to link this up to my party:

Hope you're having a great weekend!
