Transformation Week Day #2

I guess I'm on a little bit of a mid-century modern kick because three of my transformations this week happen to be of mid-century furniture.  I can't help it, I love the clean modern lines from this era.

This ombre desk was painted and styled with a girls' room in mind.  It's paired with an antique ice-cream parlor chair.


Here it is before.


And after.


If you're interesting in trying something similar on your own, the colors are:  Benjamin Moore's Touch of Pink, Little Piggy, Delicate Rose, Hydrangea Flowers and Raspberry Blush at 50%.




The brass hardware is original.



This desk is available for purchase in the shop.

  1. That is so pretty! I love the way you painted the chair so it goes but doesn't completely match. I'd love to have a little girl's room stylish enough for a piece like this.

  20. I'm in love. That is so freaking cute! I love the coral / pink tones but haven't seen them show up much on painted furniture. You have a good eye for color. I would have agonized over all those paint samples! ~ Christie

  33. What a great idea! This has so many possible options - different colors, different pieces of furniture. I've seen the ombre curtains, but didn't think to diy with painting furniture. I may try it for my office! I'd love for you to share this at my blog party Tuesday's Nursery - its for all ages of kids decor - First Tuesday every month. I hope you can make it - I'll keep the linky open for several days. Nan

  41. I have that desk! and... four cafe chairs with nothing to do around here. I am dreaming of this for my little girl's room! Now, I just have to do some repairs on the desk... the center drawer fell apart about a year ago. Thanks for the inspiration!
