Evolution of a Desk

I found this desk a while back for only $25.00!  It's solid mahogany and I love it.  I originally painted it in Provence by Annie Sloan.  You can see that post HERE.  Since then we have been working on our living room and Provence just does not match anymore so I opted to repaint this beauty with another Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color-Arles.  It's a nice mellow yellow and it goes great with our gray/yellow/white/black living room.



 I picked up this chair a while back for only $2.50.  You can read that blog post HERE.  I just recovered them in fabric to match and I am so happy with them. 

I used the same fabric to recover the lamp.  Yes, recover the lamp!  We purchased this lamp at IKEA like 5 or 6 yrs ago.  Here is what it looked like before...

It had a burned spot and it was just getting icky, so I just removed the fabric and used spray adhesive to attach the new fabric.  Super easy!

So here is the before and after--all it cost was a jar of paint!
