This sweet little desk was such a treat to makeover! My client brought the desk down to the studio for me to start working on it…and as we were talking about the colors and design plan for the piece….she paused and said ” I’m feeling a little embarassed about this piece! is it even worth it to do this? When we loaded it up, a drawer fell apart….etc.” I assured her that even though it did not look like much and needed some wood filling, clamping, glue, and a few coats of paint….this is exactly why I do what I do……and love it so much. 
It is this type of challenge that gets my creative juices flowing and makes me even more determined to bring new painting converts on board!
Seeing potential. 
Made new.
