Little Antique *Pink* Desk

Okay, first I have to apologize for not posting a single.thing in 2 months.  To tell you the truth I've been a little burnt out.  I don't know how you gals do it everyday!!  My hats off to ya!  So now that the weather is warming up and my garage isn't a blistering 20 degrees I've actually managed to do a couple pieces, this desk being of them. 
Hallelujuah to warm weather!

 Hard to believe this desk once looked like this.  It had peeling veneer so bad I had to remove the whole side. 

 I kept the original hardware.  I initially thought of chunky pink glass knobs, but this hardware is so cool I just had to put it back on plus I think it brings out the distressing.  Bonus.

This desk is NOT white..... it's pink. It looks white in these pictures, infact it looks white in person too! I hope I can find the right buyer for it because it's so pale. I'm thinking I probably should have just done white. Oh well. 

Happy painting friends!!
