French Gray Desk

The combination of French gray and creamy white paint never disappoints.

I bought this desk at the auction.  No repairs needed just some paint for a fresh look.  My favorite kind of piece.
I painted the inside with the french gray and left the insert the stained wood.
I did have to do some work for the hardware.  One of the drawer pulls was missing so I replaced the one with a pair from Restore. There were no pulls on the door.  I guess you are suppose to open them with the key, but I didn't have it.  I drilled holes and added glass knobs from Hobby Lobby.
The final touch, a Paris address from The Graphics Fairy that I stenciled on the front.
As soon as I get a day off from my real job this will be going to the antique mall.  In the meantime, I'll be joining the following parties...
