…duck egg desk

A vanity or a desk is a perfect piece to do a bright color. I have actually done a few in Duck Egg. I was thrilled to hear from my former pottery teacher asking if I would help with her daughter in-law’s vanity.

Here is the before. It is a typical desk-type with brassy hardware. Check out the legs and the detail, though. Perfect places for Chalk Paint.


Here is the after in Duck Egg Blue.






I love how it turned out. This color also photographs well.

Need a piece refinished? I am here to help! Email me a photo of your piece and I will give you an estimate. cbensten@blueeggbrownnest.com
