Carla's Campaign

Carla, one of my readers, recently emailed me these pictures. She said in the email she found this campaign style desk on Craigslist and decided to follow my instructions to paint it. I love the color she chose.. check out the before and after:

before:


after:


She painted the hardware oil rubbed bronze. I've never seen this before; I like the graphic touch it adds with the contrast.



I thought it'd be fun to post readers pics more often, so if you have any cool before and after's you'd like to share shoot me an email!

  12. I bought the same campaign desk from craigslist also, along with two file cabinets. I haven't yet decided what to do with it exactly, I will send a pic when its complete. What a great idea to add a bronze finish.
