I am so happy! The lovely vintage desk refinished in Annie Sloan Old Violet chalk paint has found a new home. I helped load it into the customer’s SUV yesterday. I watched it slowly drive away and disappear into the snowy streets towards Virginia (yes, that was meant to sound sappy)!
This piece started as a true throwaway.And now has become a beautiful vintage addition to a modern home. It is going into a newly created home office where it will once again become a working desk and look beautiful.I worked so hard refinishing the rope trim and the top. She is having a piece of glass fitted for it. Perfect!
Did I mention j’adore Old Violet? It is a sweet blue with a touch of lavender. I love it after it has been waxed and the hue deepens. A great ending to this little desk’s story. A new life awaits!
Yay! It must do your heart good knowing they’re having glass cut for the top! Now that’s a loving home! 🙂

she was so pretty she deserved a good home xx
Lucky woman. She has purchased an absolute beauty and she will never see another just like it
I really love that desk, I’m amazed it has stayed with you all this time. That Old Violet colour looks entirely different on the piece than how it looks on the ASCP paint card. I would never have used it if I’d only seen the card.

I love Old Violet too after painting in the interior of a sideboard with it. The name of the color had me resisting buying it until my supplier showed me a piece painted with it and I was hooked. You did such a beautiful job with this desk – it’s one of my top desk makeover favorites Suzanne.
I felt the same way about the name of the color. I was picturing purple but once I saw a sample board, I realized I was wrong! I just love it with dark wax – yummy! Thanks so much, Marie!
This is beautiful:) I’ve been wanting to use this color, but I just have gotten around to it yet. It’s gorgeous! Love it!
Thanks so much!
I am so lovin this desk. I really like that you didn’t paint the top, this just pulls in the richness for me. You have certainly got me at first glance!!! Superb Job
Thanks so much! Appreciate it!
