Farewell Cute Little Drop Front Vintage Writing Desk

I restyled this writing desk 3 years ago (original post here) and it is still one my favourite pieces of furniture. I don't use it as a writing desk, more for storage and show in the entryway. 

It was originally all timber, till I painted it white.

I loving distressed the edges, followed by 2 clear coats of wax.

And added super cute turquoise polkadot contact to the drawer and inside shelves.

Or yeah, and added this inspiring little saying to the inside of the drop down.

With it's original vintage hardware.

And key.

And beautiful Queen Anne legs.

Did I mention all that storage?

And now it is time for her to go to a new home. I have something else for this little space which I will be sharing with you shortly. :)

    It is a beautiful piece I am surprise to hear you are getting rid of that wonderful piece. It will be fun to see what you put in its place.

  2. Very nice makeover - I love the inspiration you added to the drop front! Visiting from the Furniture Feature Friday party :)
