Farmhouse Writing Desk

By Abigail, Owner/Artist at Orton Originals in Madison, WI.

Love at first sight. That's how I felt when I spotted this little beauty in my local thrift store. Those long curvy legs and subtle wood details. I had the vision for what she would become before I even brought her home. Because I wanted to maintain the character that comes with her age, I opted for classic black with some of the original finish showing through. Turqoise knobs provide just a touch of color while adding to that farmhouse feel. And whimsical paper in the drawers is just the ticket to finish off the look.
