Betty Blue and Washington

This desk set was actually 2 separate pieces.  I came across this chair at an occasional sale for $15.00. And later came across the desk for $20.00.  I knew these pieces would be fabulous in a beautiful turquoise color, and the chair needed a recovered seat made of an alfalfa sack.

This chair redo (she’s named Betty Blue) was a guest post for Chic on a Shoestring.  See that here.

The desk I named Washington.  I sanded and sprayed the whole thing down.  And then added gold “leafing” to the desk legs and top.

Yes, my gold leafing is simply gold Duct Tape.  It was included in a box of product to try from Duct Tape.  And I loved the way it looked!

Betty Blue and Washington are a happy pair and don’t they look like they’ve been together for years!  A match made in heaven! 

This is another project for the Master Bedroom Redo that is being revealed soon. Other projects for the Master Bedroom Redo are:
