The Energy House Showhouse that I recently completed provided me with a fun opportunity to give new life to some not-so-new pieces.
One such piece…this Queen Anne desk circa 1985.
I knew this old desk had great potential. Just look at those great cabriole legs. It was a little beat up but that was nothing a fresh coat of paint couldn’t remedy.
For all of the Energy House painting projects I chose Sherwin-Williams’ Harmony interior acrylic latex. Harmony paint is low odor and is safe for the environment. It even has anti-microbial properties.
As you can see, the result was stunning. I used the same aqua paint from the channel back chairs on the desk chair and went a bit bolder on the desk. The chair’s seat was reupholstered with a remnant trellis-patterned fabric. Can’t you just imagine sitting here and writing letters the old fashioned way?
More Energy House features soon…
