Powder Blue Shabby Chic French Provincial Desk


Abbey from Painted Home Goods scored a great deal on this little French Provincial desk at a thrift store and gave it a new, feminine look with this powder blue paint color called “Belle of the Ball”.

I’ve probably said it before, but I love French Provincial style furniture! The pieces have such cute details and I am a sucker for those ornate handles. This desk was a thrift store find and I couldn’t believe the price, though a makeover was much needed.

I chose one of Country Chic Paint’s new Lustrum Collection colors, Belle of the Ball, since the pale blue fit the feminine style so perfectly.

I finished it off with a wash of Limestone Glaze which added a nice, subtle sheen.

With some distressing and the original hardware restored, this beauty underwent a Cinderella makeover and is ready to find a new home!

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
