UPDATE FURNITURE

With 2oz of moss green chalk paint handy I decided to do a quick paint project and give my old office desk a makeover. It took under 5 minutes to complete and it changed the whole look of the desk and brightened up the dark corner of the living room.

Before Desk, Moss Chalk Paint Update

OFFICE DESK

I purchased the hairpin legged desk at TJMaxx several years ago to use in my home office. It did get used but I quickly realized when owning a business a much larger desk is needed. This one is pretty but not functional when I have things spread from one end to the next along with two computers, a printer, and everything else that goes along with running an office from home.

REPURPOSE

I hated to discard the desk so I repurposed it into a corner desk in the living room and often use it for jotting down notes, bible study, and doing my nails. I never minded the finish but while being on lockdown I noticed how much it blended in with the log color and sure wasn’t making any kind of a statement.

CHALK PAINT

So after swapping out my farmhouse dining table to use as a much bigger desk in the office I repurposed this smaller desk and gave it a much needed face lift by adding a little color. Without any craft stores open in my neck of the woods yet I headed to my paint stash to see what I could come up with. I had gray, white, and black chalk paint in quart size containers and a small 2 oz bottle of moss green chalk paint.

IMMEDIATE RESULTS

I thought what the heck I’d give it a try and see if it was enough to cover the entire pieces. Well guess what it was plenty enough to give it two coats with a little to spare. It dried quickly and in no time I had it finished and back in order. I just love a quick project with immediate results.

POP OF COLOR

The green paint color is used in several places around our home; the kitchen island, the entry way doors, and throw pillows so it was the perfect choice for a pop of color. It’s quite amazing how many projects I’ve ticked off my list over the past few months. I sure haven’t like being confined but I have been quite productive.

NEW LOOK

I’m surprised no one has every asked me what the two wooden stick standing in the corner of this room are, or maybe I’ve done a good job of editing them out of photos. But any who; back in the day water lines were wooden and my hubbies family were well drillers. These just happen to be two sticks of wooden water lines that we’ve kept. They’ve stood in the corner for years and I have no idea what to do with them. If you have any brilliant ideas leave me a comment please. They’re quite long; probably 15’ each and I have two of them.

  1. Love the sweet little update of your desk. The moss green chalk paint is perfect for summer.

    1. Danielle, it seems to be my favorite color the last couple of years. It words well with our log home.

  2. LOVE that gorgeous green you chose! Such a lovely, yet subtle way to brighten up that little corner!

    1. Thanks Kristi it was a fun and quick project that was needed to make that corner come alive.

  3. I love the contrast of the new paint with the wood! Looks so good, Dawn!

    1. I agree Doreen it needed the contrast to make it stand out.

    Pray tell…what in the world, are wooden water lines?!…How are they used?

    1. Sharon, years ago water was brought into your home in wooden lines, not PVC or steel like now. Can you imagine how they did that? The center of the wooden rod is hollowed out and water flows through it. Because it always has water in it it never rots, the water actually preserves the wood; like an old boat sunk in the ocean it stays in tact forever as long as it’s not brought to the surface.

      1. Sharon Cross says:

        Dawn…Do you know, what species of wood, the water lines are made of?

  5. I simply love the colour you’ve picked, it’s perfect! And those legs, are to die for love this update so much!

    1. Laurie, the reason I purchased the desk was for the legs! Other than that it’s hardly functional for our office, lol.

    Dawn…I had no idea water pipes were wood, in the beginning of indoor plumbing!…My house was built in 1868…I wonder if my house had this?!…This is new information for me!…I am going to do some online digging, about the subject!…I enjoy your blog and never fail to read it!
