Ruby Red Desk

When I found this desk on Craigslist I knew I wanted a rich, super vibrant color to update it. 

At first I thought Kelly Green, but I couldn't find the right shade, everything was to Christmas-y. 

So if you know off a great green I'd love to hear it!


So I browsed my paint deck obsessively and finally decided on oil-based, high gloss, Heartthrob by Sherwin Williams. 


Isn't the name of the color dead on?

It makes my heart go ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum.

Or whatever noise your heart makes. :)



Smooth, glossy, vibrant and ruby red.

Little Ms. Ruby Red desk you are a show stopper.

  13. It really was sort of pretty in the natural wood but I DO LOVE the red paint. Red is just a great color for an accent piece. I'm always torn about painting over wood because wood is beautiful in it's natural state but some pieces are improved with colored paint.

  14. Reds can be almost as tricky as greens, but you hit it right on with this one. It's like adding the lipstick to a room!

  15. You're so lucky to live where you can buy oil based paint! I had to travel to the next state to get some,,,,and it's only in black and white! Love this red! It's perfect for the piece. Did you spray???

  19. Oh my goodness, the perfect shade! With the hardware it's totally swoon-worthy! Kelly Green is hard to find, someone coined the term 'Kate Spade Green" and i think that is right on. Just color match from her and you are good to go.
