One of my very favourite pieces is this dainty Lady’s Vanity or Desk. I like to refer to it as the ‘Marie Antoinette Desk’ and picture her sitting at it and writing her secret letters to her lover Axel, a Swedish Count.
The desk has lots of intricate carvings, especially on the drawers, what made it so perfect for a layered chalk paint treatment. The first coat is done in a custom Blue – Grey and topped with Pure White. After distressing the piece I finished it with soft wax and polished it to a wonderful shine.
The desk is 43.5” wide, 20” deep. 29.5” high and is available for $ 350.
