When I found this smart fabric I knew it would be on my next desk project. With this desk you can find algorithms, the periodic table, beakers filled with colorful liquids, eyeglasses and bow ties.
I painted an ordinary desk with a nice olive green and then out came the Mod Podge. After removing the hardware I gave the drawer fronts a good coat. I positioned the fabric onto the drawers and let it dry overnight. After I trimmed the excess fabric I gave the top another coat of Mod Podge to give it a good sealed surface. I painted the hardware silver and replaced them. For an extra bit of fun I hammered silver upholstery brads into every corner.
When I finished I stepped back and kept repeating, “I do not need another desk”, ” I do not need another desk”. After photographing this desk I immediately placed it into the SUV to take to my “boothtique” space. I knew if it made it into the house it was not coming out anytime soon.
Thank you for stopping by,
