CityCrafter Michele's Desk Makeover

If your first reaction to a great furniture find in need of a little makeover is to slather it in paint, think again! CityCrafter Michele Flores traded an imitation Parsons desk for this fabulous midcentury modern desk that her friend purchased for $5 at a Lewisville antique mall. She knew it could have a bright new life as her sewing desk in her craft room, and instead of painting it, Michele grabbed the sand paper. She advises,  "All I can say is that you have to sand, sand, sand it and then sand some more!" Once her piece was well sanded, Michele paid us a visit at CityCraft and fell in love with one of our newest arrivals, Chaindot in Garden from the organic Free to Grow Collection by ModGreenPod for Robert Kaufman. Michele discovered that one of the challenges of applying fabric to furniture was trying to get the lines in the print to align with the desk. "Trying to get it straight will drive people crazy, but I think it looks okay." We think it looks MORE than okay, it looks FABULOUS! GREAT JOB, MICHELE! [gallery link="file"]
