I have told you before that I love red.
Yes, I do realize that there are some people out there in the world that do not love red as much as I do.
What can I say, not every one's perfect. ;)
I got so many emails about this table.
Which I ended up selling to a friend of mine. Thanks Michelle!
Michelle's daughter came home and saw the table then asked her mom where she got the rocking table.
I do realize that I am past the cool age, but still feels good when you get props from the little cool people.
Is props even a cool word anymore?
So anyways, with so many emails about the table, I decided to paint that desk I got for free on craigslist a red facelift too.
So remember it started by looking like this.
This sad desk has been sitting in my garage since July. I just couldn't put my finger on exactly what I wanted to do with it.
And here is what it looks like now!
I painted it the exact same way as the red accent table, but with the lighting it looks a little orangey red to me. Almost like a paprika color.
But promise in person it is red.
So just to recap, I painted it with the candy apple red spray paint, then I glazed it with Ralph Lauren glaze that was tinted tea stain but I added some graphite colored paint to the glaze.
I love the little button tops. They add a little detail that I like.
The hardware is actually from another desk I have. I just spray painted them black.
I also like that the wood is separated on the side. It gives it a little personality.
There you go people another red table.
To those that do not love red as much as me. I am moving away from the red I am already starting to work on some other pieces and red is not even on my radar. But if you are not a blue person either. Then... I am sorry.
I am selling the desk for $100.
I am linking to these parties.
