Graphite Desk

This was a beautiful vanity but it was missing the mirror & the veneer on top was in really bad shape.  Sorry for the crappy before picture, this is the only one I could find with the drawers from the purple dinosaur sitting on top.  (that will be another post if I ever get it done!).  It had a beautiful raised half moon piece on the top that had to come off to remove all of the veneer.  I liked it so much I painted it white & distressed it.  I'm keeping it for myself :)

I originally planned on painting it black with ASCP Graphite as the base so I wouldn't have to sand it.  After I got a really good coat of Graphite on I really liked the look.  I didn't distress & sealed with a wipe on poly.  It is a great size for a small desk or could still be used as a vanity.    It still has the original wooden casters, love!

44"L x 28"H x 17 1/2"D, leg opening 19 1/2".  Available for sale at City Antiques in Roswell.
