She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

French Script Writing Desk





This oak desk has been sitting in my work shop for months, knowing I love the shape of it but not sure what color or how I wanted to embellish it or if it really needed embellish at all. 
I got a call from Valley Antiques to let me know a large table was sold. Oh no I don't have a thing ready to go over to the shop. So I pulled this beauty out on Friday and painted her with Ce Ce Caldwell's chalk/clay paint in Simply White, after she was painted I could see she needed something. Then I remembered this French script stencil I ordered and haven't been able to use yet. It fit perfect on this desk top. I have a passion for grays and whites, so I took some Ce Ce's paint in 1 part Pittsburgh Gray and 3 parts Simply White to get this  gentle touch of Gray. 
Later in the day I added a coat of Ce Ce's clear wax, Saturday morning buffed the desk and by noon she was ready to make an appearance.
I'm lovin this Desk!!
She's now sitting in The Vintage Attic's room at 
Valley Antiques 108 East Baltimore Street Funkstown, MD
Have A Fabulously Blessed Day,

I looks beautiful! Phone calls from the shop when you sell a big piece are a mixed blessing. At first you're delighted and then....oh no! I have nothing ready.
