Roadside Rescue Free Desk and Chair Makeover

Good Morning my Beauties.
Hope your new year is starting off GREAT!
We got the dishwasher installed yesterday and it only took us 8 hours..LOL!
So now I have time to write up a quick post
of my latest rescue project.

I got this desk for free as it was heading out to the trash...It sat about 3 months in my garage while I decided what I wanted to do with it.
Finally inspiration struck.

I was playing with my Ce Ce Caldwells paint and mixed up some custom colors.
The first was this smokey gray purple. I painted the whole base with that.
I then painted the drawers with a vintage white and the top with my ever so favorite..
Virginia Chestnut.

While that was drying I got started on another rescue. I got this chair while out on a walk one night
with the hubby. He actually tried to turn me down another road as we came upon it because he spotted it before me. He thought I might not have seen it...but oops too he bucked up and even carried it home..LOL!~ I painted it the same as
the base of the desk.

I then used one of my favorite stencils on the seat to give it an even more chic look and
shabbied it up.

It then got waxed and distressed and buffed and then got some pretty new
mercury glass knobs.

I love how it all came together and only cost me what I already
had on hand. :)

I hope you enjoyed this little makeover. Happy to say the chair has already SOLD..
I don't think it was even in my booth a day.
Looks like I will have to go hunting for another rescue......
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!
