I know I was suppose to share kitchen cabinets and counter tops in my Blog this week, but counter tops won’t be installed until Thursday. Instead I will fill you in on some odds and ends that have been going on. I finished the desk for my office, the chandelier was hung in the powder room and the barndoor was put up.
This is the server my mother- in-law gave me that I envisioned as a desk. I refinished the top only to uncover the amazing burled wood. Burled wood is from a tree growth where the wood has grown in a deformed manner. When the tree is cut, the wood grain comes out in a swirl pattern. Very unique and beautiful!
I decided to paint the base of the desk with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint. The wood legs were beautiful, but it was a little dark for the direction I am going for in my office.
The color is exactly what I was looking for. It changes it enough to suit my taste, but does not deter from the beauty of the burled wood top.
Look at that detail!
Here is the desk in my office. I love it! Now I just need to make some decisions on color and décor to go around it.
I picked this chandelier up for five dollars at a garage sale. I knew some day I would find the perfect place for it!
I can not wait to see it with the wallpaper!
The barndoor to the laundry room was hung.
I love the way it looks with the herringbone tile!
If all goes well next week kitchen reveal!
