Upcycled desk

I bought this lovely old desk from a lady in North London on Monday and did some upcycling in the sunshine on Tuesday (what a fab week to be on leave) - Farrow and Ball French Grey, a wonderful soft grey.

Then a coat of wax...

...and in the shop Wednesday.

Job done!


  1. That looks fantastic - and French Grey is one of my favourite Farrow & Ball colours - we painted the walls in my sitting room in my last house with it. A brilliant job - well done, (and yes, what a GLORIOUS week to have had off!) x

  2. Nice job!!! It looks beautiful. I love seeing how paint transforms things - and you know I'm a sucker for anything Farrow and Ball!!


  3. You did a great job, Louise, that desk looks lovely !
    Nice color, I do love the Farrow and Ball colors !
    Have a nice weekend,

  4. i like it! i really want to try painting and de stressing furniture....maybe this year!

    1. I really enjoy doing it - it's creative and therapeutic - but from a business perspective its a lot of labour for small profit margin!
