I am pretty much obsessed with coral lately.  If coral was a man... my hubby would totally be jealous.  

My mom and I found this desk on one of our MANY thrifting adventures a month or so ago.  And in true Traci fashion, it sat in my garage collecting dust while I "thought" it over.  Then, the other week I randomly bought a can of coral paint while I was at Sherwin Williams without really knowing how I was going to use it.  (I'm guessing you can see where this story is headed.)

When my SWEET bench sold at the store I realized I had to hurry up and replace it.  Since I didn't have anything ready to go I decided it was time for this desk to get it's new life.  I dragged it out, wiped it down and got to work.  



The original plan was to do a really really light blue.  Almost white.  It would have been really pretty but I am so glad I went with the coral!  This desk makes me want to put it in my guest room and redo the entire room around it!  Unfortunately the hubby reminded me that I had a space to fill at the shop so I will not be keeping this beauty... I guess I can always do it again down the road:(  I hate it when he is the voice of reason.

Keeping It Simple

  3. Oooh it turned out so retro and I love it!!! It reminds me of a paint I just got from Annie Sloan Chalk Paints called Barcelona. Makes me wanna try something bold like this! Thanks for sharing. I'd love for you to link up at my party... Thanks!
