Painted French Writing Desk – Reader Featured Project

Painted French Writing Desk

This beautiful Painted French Writing Desk was submitted by one of my readers, Colleen via my new readers submissions page, isn’t it lovely?

When Colleen bought this table at a consignment shop for $32, it was plain black.  She brought it home, painted it, and added my Transfer Printable – French Typography – Flower Seller, and gave it a whole new look!

It turned out beautifully, Colleen!  You can find more of Colleen’s beautiful transformations on her facebook page, Bizzy Beez Furniture, HERE!
