Coming soon...

Sometimes I walk in to a thrift store, not intending to find anything spectacular.  But secretly hoping I will find the piece that will make my year.  This was one of those times.

I'd never even heard of this style desk before.  But as I was on my way out of the Goodwill with a little coffee table, I ran smack dab into a really cool desk that was just coming out from the back to be put on display.

I stopped this poor guy in his tracks and told him to "Stop, I want to take a look at this desk!" So he stood there patiently as I did so. 

As I rounded the back, I couldn't believe my good fortune.  It was in great shape and might be the perfect piece to replace the computer desk we are currently using,  which isn't working out the way I hoped.

I bought it and never looked back, in case they figured out what this thing was really worth.

Here's a little hint at what's to come later this week.

 French louis  desk in black, pineapple lamp, sisal rug, french legged chairs, bookcase, trim and paintcolor...many design periods juxtaposed together so well.

Art Wall 

Man I want this!  Louis XV style desk. Recently painted in a turquoise distressed finish with gilt detail. Top opens to reveal compartment with a mirror. 4 drawers 
Stay tuned, I hope to have it finished by the end of the week.


  1. What a treasure you found! I love the lines of that piece. Can't wait to see what you do with it Kathleen!

  2. I'm already jealous! I'm using a repurposed vanity right now, and dang it DH won't let me paint the darn thing. And it's on the low side, so only the bench that came with it can be used for seating...I can't wait to see what you scored!

  3. Good for you!! It rarely happens, but when it does, it's like the angels are singing!! Can't wait to see your find!
