Looks amazing now, but this was a rusty metal desk with a rotten plywood top that had been forgotten in an outdoor storage building. Our southeast Texas, hot & humid weather is deadly to furniture!
And the chair?...well it was boring and old school brown.
But I had a vision, and a plan!
Here is the project story...
Hubby replaced a couple bad pallet boards, then the metal frame was sanded, primed and painted grey.
The worst and best idea I had for this project was adding the nail trim. Best because it looks farmhouse vintage cool! Worst because it was an absolute bear to hand hammer in 80 nails (yes I counted!) through the pallet boards. I forgot that pallets are usually made of HARD wood. My hands were in agony for days!
Hubby thinks I am a hoarder...haha!
I am possibly a teensy bit of a decorative hoarder which is VERY different than being a "real hoarder"!
Decided on white paint and a fun fabric...
I narrowed the seat fabric choice to two and took a family vote...the grey cheetah fabric won!
The window nook in what I named the "Galveston" guest room was a perfect fit for the newly up-cycled-desk & vintage chair.
