This writing desk came from the same set as the Hallway dresser. I got if from my grandmother and it was my mother's when she was young. Like the Hallways dresser, I transformed the old desk with a couple coats of the Behr Decorative Chalk Paint in Farmhouse White. I then updated the hardware with some handles I found at Home depot, and then finished by reupholstering the chair with some new fabric. This is now my favorite part of my study!
