You may remember this cute little desk from a few posts ago. I picked it up at Goodwill 50% off Saturday for a whopping $10:
I decided to paint it the loveliest shade of white (it's called Filigree) and distress the edges (naturally.)
I wanted to give it a little something special. But what, you may ask (or perhaps you may not ask, but I’m going to tell you anyways.) :)
Over at The CSI Project this week, they’re having a Martha Stewart inspired project week. While browsing at Martha Stewart’s website, I came across this studded dresser, in this case, done for a child’s room.
The clever folks over at marthastewart.com had painted the heads of nails and pounded them in a simple design to embellish the boring drawer fronts on a little dresser. I loved the effect, but decided for my application to use upholstery tacks, to tie in with the antique brass patina hardware on the desk.
The quatrefoil design is mirrored on the left side of the desk as well, but I need to run and pick up a few more tacks to finish it. :) You know how that goes… I think it’s a fun little interesting addition. What do you think?
I’m working on another very fun project as we speak. It might just take up permanent residency in my home, I’m loving it that much. Can’t wait to show you!! Maybe tomorrow or the next day. It’s VBS week, so I have several free hours in the mornings. I should be doing housework, but I’ll probably be busy with projects (sorry, honey!)
‘Till next time,
This project is competing in the Martha Stewart Inspired Challenge at The CSI Project!
