Carte Postale Desk

This desk with a hutch top was in good shape and solid wood but can you say "b-o-r-i-n-g?" It is a nice size (not too big) and I knew that some paint and a couple of other new details could revive it.
I added some textured wallpaper to that back panel, then painted & antiqued it.  Here's the revival -
The color is actually much deeper than it shows in the photo - it's HM chalk paint made with Glidden's Smoked Turquoise.  The top of the desk & the back panel were also painted with HM chalk paint made with BM Galveston Gray.  It was waxed with Americana Decor's clear wax first, then with Americana Decor's brown wax.  The typography on the desk top is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy.
