Seeing the Beauty Underneath the Beast: Desk Makeover

When I first laid eyes on this writing desk, I wasn’t going to stop to pick it up. The top looked really beaten and un-salvageable,” says Denise at Salvaged Inspirations.  Luckily she got out of the car for a closer inspection, and decided that while it would take some effort, the desk was more than salvageable.  It came home with her.


At home, Denise removed all of the peeling veneer and stained the desktop.  The rest of the desk and chair she painted in Miss Mustard Seeds Tricycle Milk Paint and glazed with General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects.  The chair got an eye-catching new upholstery job with zebra-print fabric.  Stunning!

  1. It turned out very attractive, like the color choice very much and always appreciate zebra print; however since there was damage to the top, I would have hoped to have seen how it looked after your make over.

    • Glad you like it! Feel free to follow the links provided in my feature to see the original blog post about this desk. Lots more views over there!

  2. I think the admin of this website is genuinely working hard in support of his web page, as here every stuff is quality based information.

  3. So besides using just one print for every shirt with heat airport transfer printing,
    you can start using a frame for several tops. This article is written by John Mc
