Campaign Uncovered

Hallelujah! The campaign is finished! Campaign desk, that is...

Actually, it's been done for a while. I just finally put the hardware back on yesterday. What can I say? I don't move quickly. Thank goodness I don't write a blog where people expect me to actually finish projects in a timely manner :)

When I found the desk on craigslist, it looked like this...

I liked the green, but it was chipping. Since the desk was for my son's room, I thought I'd go with a more masculine hue.

Benjamin Moore's "Eclipse." 

I've got one more piece of furniture to makeover to complete the "tween room."

So many possibilities for this piece.... hmmmm....

What would you do to it?

  2. oh and I love your makeover! good color choice.

  3. OMG - how lucky are you to find such great pieces. Love the desk color.

  4. Oh- I love that piece- the color is wonderful. I would paint the other piece, too. You sure find some great pieces. xo Diana

    ps. Pop by if you get a chance and wish my little SweetCheeks a Happy Birthday- she is going to read all the comments.

  5. What a great desk, Carolyn! I really like the hardware and the colour you chose.
    Have a great evening,

  6. Kim... that tin is older than the hills. Not sure where it came from. I was using it as a penny jar, but thought it would be fun on Jack's desk.

  7. I'm new here. I am looking around and following you on Pinterest and Facebook. Have a Merry. Linda

  8. Ooh, I love that color. Nice job! I almost scored a campaign desk for $50 for my boys' room on Craigslist the other day, but I was just a little too late :(
