Desk Redoux: Meet The Admiral March 28, 2012 DIY, Furniture Makeovers, LCH Interiors, Thrift Store Finds 8 Comments 9974 I totally hit the jackpot last week at Goodwill, picking up this sweet desk for just $15. I loved the shape and the gold trim and couldn’t wait to get started. But first I had to decide on a color… I like to use colors I already have for projects I’m planning to sell in my booth- and I have a pretty good stash. I’ve got a lot of neutrals, but I knew whatever I picked would need to look killer sanded through to the gold after distressing. I did a little mental inventory…Dovetail, Sedate Gray, Homberg Gray, Creamy, Plum Brown, Naval… Naval. Oh heck yes. I had some SW Naval leftover from my Union Jack dresser. I got so excited about the navy on the gold, envisioning the furniture version of a uniform. It turned out so sweet that I wish I had a place for it in my home. I hope someone buys it for a little boy’s nautical themed room, but it would totally work for an adult as well. The desk was missing one knob, which is a shame because they were really cute…but I did find these antiqued brass replacements. The Admiral sits in my booth now, and hopefully he will find a new home soon! 8 Responses Kassi @ Truly Lovely March 28, 2012 You are so creative with these makeovers!
