Well, she's finally finished!
When I started on this desk I mentioned that I don't normally 'name' my projects, but this one just kept coming back to me as Thoroughly Modern Milly.
It was a 1970's country yellow:
It had been well loved. I had to clean and sand a bit before priming.
These little flower embellishments are the best part of the desk!
It had one drawer that was missing it's glider, so the bottom sagged when it was pushed in.
The yellow grew on me though. And, when I saw Southern Lovely's gorgeous yellow dresser, I knew what I wanted this little desk to look like: a modern version of what it already was.
It didn't have a chair- I purchased that later, and I love the lines on it.
Someone else had already done some artistic embellishments to it (that I didn't think fit it very well....) so I just gave it a coat of the same paint and added a modern gray, black, and white seat to it. Kinda trendy and modern, but still with a sweet nostalgia to it. And that's how the name took.
I love the buttery yellow color- it's Strawflower by Rustoleum. The only place I could find it was Home Depot.
We fixed the saggy drawer (thanks dad!) and now it is ready to go! This is for sale on Craiglslist- hoping she finds a good home to go to.
