Farmhouse Desk and Chair

Have I ever told you about my happy place?

It's usually the place I think about before I fall asleep.

It's a cottage with large windows, lots of fresh flowers, homemade French bread every morning for breakfast and a brand new white fitted T-shirt to wear everyday.

(It doesn't take much to make me happy :)) 

I would put this desk in my happy place.  






The desk is painted in Jargon Jade by Sherwin Williams and the chair is Ballet White by Behr.

Both pieces are heavily distressed and chippy, aged with Minwax Golden Oak stain and sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax. 

For more info look under The Shop tab at the top of the page.
