Turquoise Desk with Hutch and a Mini Buffet

I can't seem to remember to take pictures of my pieces before their makeovers.  But imagine the typical orange colored pine desk.  The desk had writing on it and had some deep gouges.  I sanded the entire thing and filled the gouges before painting it my new favorite turquoise color.  It's Valspar's paint and primer in one.  It goes on so smooth.  I refinished the top to look like weathered barn wood.  I found the desk, chair, and hutch at different sales.  Painting them all the same color made them seem like they were a family all along.  I listed this set online and it sold in 10 minutes.  This one was hard to let go.  I want to keep everything!!!

I picked up this side table / mini buffet at our local thrift store.  It was unfinished pine and very sturdy.  It has one large drawer on top that looks like two.  I added the chevron paper behind the glass. I love everything about this piece: the circle pulls, the chevron paper, the color.  This piece was also hard to let go of and sold quickly.

You'll be seeing a lot more of this color!!!!!  I'm linking up to RedouxTransformation ThursdayFurniture Feature Friday, and Frugal Friday
