Frenchy Writing Desk and Chair

Hello everyone, how was your weekend?   I spent most of mine working  in the garage trying to make a dent in my ever growing pile of trash soon to be treasures.  I did finish one project that had been driving me crazy thinking what to do with it.   It wasn’t until I found Lisa at CreateInspire giving me the inspiration that I needed to make-over this desk.    002

Her blog is full of inspiration with the most gorgeous make-overs!  If you have never visited her blog, you should!  You will be in for a real treat and will leave feeling so inspired just like I do. 


Now when I’m in my garage, I stand there and look at my pile of trash soon to be treasures and ask myself “what would Lisa do”! 


One more project down and I’ve lost count on how many more are left because I keep adding to my pile of trash.  I picked up a few more furniture pieces this weekend which I will share in another post. 


Now, go check out Lisa’s blog….you will not be disappointed! 

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.

  1. Hello Gail,
    LOVE IT!!! What more can I say...it's a true WINNER! Thanks for sharing at my party this week.


  2. I love this Gail! How cute to put the chalk paint on the top and all of the script. Love the color too.


  3. It's gorgeous, Gail! I love it! I'd love to find a desk about this size to do. I keep finding big ones though! I have to stick with my "it has to fit in the back of my Sorento and I have to be able to lift it myself" rule or I might have gone for one. I found Lisa's blog last week when she shared that fabulous turquoise French desk she did. She does do some wonderful makeovers.

  4. What a beautiful piece Gail!I will hop on over and check out Lisa's blog! Thank you for sharing!

  5. How unique! Someone should sit down there and write a novel!!

  6. So pretty! Love the colors and french touch ;) I’d love it if you could link this up to our party, Give Me The Goods Monday! {1 party, 4 blogs}
    Have a great week!

  7. WOW! Oh my, that is one GORGEOUS desk and the chair is very sweet along with the typewriter sitting on the table. I love your painting job on the top, perfection! I LOVE it. You can be certain that it will sell quickly.

  12. I LOVE your desk! It's really beautiful! I'm especially in love with the drawer fronts but the grey grain sack detail on the chair is also gorgeous. I just pinned and will be your newest follower. :)
