Antique Desk and Chair Set

Once upon a time there was a sweet little desk. She lived at The Broadmoor Hotel. She enjoyed the high life as presidents, dignitaries, famous musicians and businessmen sat and enjoyed the view of the Rocky Mountains…

Just kidding! Kind of. This desk WAS a part of the furnishings of the historic hotel. I can only imagine the faces she has seen!

The top had cigar burns and some decent wear-and-tear…

I paired her with a cute harp-backed chair.

  1. This is my favorite so far! Did you upholster it in my colors for a specific reason?? I was thinking I need a nice desk for school this year…


  2. That is a wonderful make-over. It's always fun for me to meet another Colorado friend. I'm on the northeastern plains out by Fort Morgan. I do love visiting the Springs and want to go again soon! Thanks for sharing! ♥♫


  3. I LOVE what you've done here! It makes me want to go out and shop the yard sales, to attempt something like this on my own. I LOVE how it turned out!

  4. I absolutely love the details on this desk. The painting and distressing really brought them out. You found a pretty chair to go with it, too. Well done.


  5. Oh my gosh, Andrea….what a transformation! You did such a great job giving that beautiful desk and chair a new life. And I'm speechless over your distressing job! Just perfection, girl! 🙂 Luuuuv it!

    Happy Met Monday!
