FRENCH GREY HAND PAINTED DESK/TABLE

A little more than a year ago I designed and painted this desk/table.  I had most of the wood cut, my supplies and legs, and was going to build it myself.  Then I realized maybe I couldn't make it as strong and sturdy as my carpenter neighbor could.  So, I gave him the pieces and asked him to build it for me.


After my  neighbor did a great job of building this table, I painted it a french grey, painted a lighter french grey design, distressed and then aged it with an aging/antiquing glaze that I mixed.


For a while I had this table in a store, Gracious Living.  Kennie sold tons of my things, but this desk/table wasn't in there very long and Kennie closed her store.  So, it's been in storage and now I'm ready to sell it again.  I really love this desk/table, but don't have room for it in my house.


Here it is in Gracious Living.  Kennie put everything together so beautifully!


Since the french browny greys are so popular now, I think I'll paint some more things these colors.
Update:  I really love this table and couldn't bear to sell it, so I'm  now using it as my own desk.
