Paint and Stain Desk

Allison from Fab Rehab Creations received her grandfather’s old desk when her parents decided to sell their vacation home. Allison knew she wanted to keep it for her own work space and give it an updated, two-tone look.


Allison refinished the top in dark walnut and painted the base a creamy white with some distressing and glaze. Allison loves the finished product and is especially happy to have a piece of her grandfather in her own home. I love pieces like this that have sentimental meaning. It’s so neat to think that Allison can think of her grandfather whenever she is working at her desk.

    OH.MY.WORD. I’m sitting here using a desk EXACTLY like this one to hold my computer. I would love to refinish it but it’s my daughters and she likes the wood. But your desk came out amazing, just love the look!
