Gray's Anatomy

By Cindy Collins, Owner, Designer at Romancing the Home at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford, GA.

This vintage second-hand desk was totally transformed and perfectly paired with a long, upholstered bench.  Utilizing dark and light grays over white, the desk and bench were painted in reverse color combinations to coordinate and create contrast.  Seagull Gray was used over Chalk White on the desk with Driftwood knobs.  The piece was then heavily distressed to reveal the white under coat and original wood finsh. The bench was painted in Driftwood over Chalk White and upholstered in a fun, bold print.  Both pieces were then top coated with a protective finish.
