I found this little desk at a local thrift store and decided it was a great piece to adopt and give a new home and life.
I decided that it needed a little personality and since my youngest son is a French student, I decided to give it a little French twist. I painted it black and finished the top with a golden color."
Translated, the top of the desk says ( And I hope I remember this correctly!)...
"One day a lady who loved her two sons very much found a little desk. She painted the desk and secretly wrote that she loved her sons very much. Her sons laughed at her painted desk until they realized it was an expression of her love for them. Then they loved the desk too."
I refinished the handles as well. I think it turned out great. I've kept it in my living room/dining room combo. It's the perfect spot for a small accent piece like this.
