This was a labor of love because it was a special gift for my mom. She wanted a small simple desk, so I got to work. I found this beautiful sofa table but new it would be perfect as a desk. I already had a chair in my inventory that would look great with it so now it was time to make them pretty. I chose Nantucket Green Chalk Style Paint as I did a previous piece for my mom in that color and she loved it. I sanded the top down and kept it natural because the grain was beautiful. I just added some shellac to make it bright and shiny.
