Old White and Ethan Allen

I found this awesome, Ethan Allen,single pedestal desk awhile back and have been excited about freshening it up.  Here’s a before photo:


As you can see, its style is a bit dated, but I knew with a little updating this piece could have a new life.  Ethan Allen is known for their solid, impressive quality pieces, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong by grabbing this desk.

I chose a fresh white from Annie Sloan’s collection called Old White and lightly distressed it, just to give it a subtle, worn look.  The original hardware, although not the worst hardware I have ever seen, just didn’t excite me, and I decided to add some adorable knobs from Anthropologie to give this piece a bit more modern style.  Here’s it is now!


I hope you love it as much as I do!  This piece was just listed on our Etsy site.  Please check it out today!
