Mid Century Makeovers

It's been alittle busy here lately because of all the custom refurbishments we had to do for some clients in the past month. All that is done now. We can move on to new things that just came in.

These desks have been done for awhile but I finally had the time to post them. These were actually some freebies from the cities annual clean up, which you can read about it here.

Mid century desk #1
This desk wasn't so bad when we picked it up. The leg was screwed off but that was it. It was very clean, all it needed was a wipe down and then off to painting.

The before.

Not so bad, quite nice actually for being original but of course here at Chateau Revivals, we prefer things painted.

And then...

The after

She was painted a custom grey/blue along with Kona stained drawers and legs, she was then after sealed with a poly.

She looks totally different, it's so modern! More our style!

Mid century desk #2

Here's one that had its problems. This thing was actually a sewing machine, with no sewing machine. The finish was super chipped off, the top had the sewing machine hole along with imprints of what used to be tile?? Someone tortured this poor thing.

The before..

The after

A brand new top was bought, the whole thing was sanded down to bare bone. She was painted Behr's paint and primer Zen. The top is stained Varathane's Early American stain.

She's all better now, and of course super cute!

Thanks for looking!

Check back for what we have to show next!
I promise you it's such eye candy!

  1. Love what you did with the desks. Glad you did the two-tone on the first one. Very pretty. Don't you love working on these with all their straight lines? I've been on an MCM kick lately. Just finished a beast of a buffet/hutch. Pop on over for a look if you get a chance! Thanks

  2. Love the modern look and the wood and paint combinations - very pretty!
