French Grain Sack Desk

Oh my, I cannot believe that it has been over a month since I last blogged. I have definitely missed it. We have had shows and a wedding for the last month. I have been running around with my head cut off. We now have a two week break and I am going to enjoy every minute of it!  In the midst of the extreme chaos, I picked up this desk. It was actually in good shape other than it was missing the molding.
We gave it a coat of Old White and then a coat of Cashmere by Van Gogh Chalk Paint.  However, it was just same ol, same ol.  I asked my grandma about adding a couple of french grain sack lines and she loved the idea.  We taped it off and painted the lines coco.  I really, really like how it turned out. 
The customer who bought the piece told me.  When I saw this desk with the stripe on it, I was sold.  She then preceded to say I saw a lot of cute white desks but great job for being a little bit more creative.  
Sorry, for the lighting of these pictures.  It was starting to get dark and these were last minute pictures as furniture was being loaded into the trailer.  Bummer!  Now that we have time, I am going to work on really getting amazing photos of our pieces we are working on.
Did you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend?


  1. Oh I agree with the customer - that grain sack pattern is just perfection!!!
    Great job

  2. The desk looks FABULOUS! I was off the blogging wagon, too, only to recently return. Sometimes you just gotta take a break and recollect!
