My Moms desk in this not-so-fitting pale purple
So my mom, being the giving mother she is, told me I could take it. I shlepped this desk upstairs, into my car, back to the city, out of my car and back up the stairs again to my condo. I was sweating but determined to make this piece amazing. I knew that I wanted the piece to flow in my apartment so I figured that I would paint it a cool shade of green to compliment my other vintage piece in my living room.
Prob one of the greatest finds from an antique store in a while...
I found the PERFECT most amazing color from the Benjamin Moore Affinity collection, Agave. Not only is the color stunning, but the paint I used contains an extremely low level of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) which can greatly effect indoor air quality.
Its a DOUBLE GREEN WHAMMY!!! I'm reusing an existing piece of furniture and using a "green" paint product to refinish it.
I am still working on accessorizing the desk but don't want to overcrowd or create a feeling of clutter. There are just a few items that I found around my apartment.
The garbage lid on the top of the desk is also another amazing find from an antique store.
