Pink writing desk custom shade ASCP

Pink Writing Desk Love

I just adore a great petite desk… and this one is no exception! It’s not very deep, has just enough details, is on wheels and has an area to stow away your “crap”… perfect!



I sanded down some of the deeper surface scratches and cleaned the desk really good with Formula 409.

I love this shade of pink… it’s kind of Raspberry Smoothie pink I think! The color is a custom mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Emperor’s Silk and Pure White (3:1)

On the inside I added some printed contact paper on the bottom and some chalkboard vinyl. I cut the vinyl out with my Silouhette machine… I think it’s a nice place to leave yourself notes!

You won’t be able to put much in this space, but it’s plenty of room for small electronics, or it could also be used as a makeup table…

The legs have just enough shape to them to be interesting and I just love the brass and rubber wheels… it rolls SUPER smoothly!

A little bit of distressing and clear wax finish this desk off beautifully…

I think it would work great in place of a bedside table, which is how I photographed it.


I also updated Sierra’s old lamp shade. It it made of parchment paper and was a old yellow color… I painted it with Pure White chalk paint, cut out an “S” in vinyl and stenciled it with some grey chalk paint I had leftover. I also added this cute flower I made with scrapbook embellishments and a gemstone brad that I just pushed through the shade… SUPER EASY and fast!

Hope you liked the pink desk and custom shade!

Until next time!

My Signature


  1. Great re-do! I love the yummy pink color – it has just enough blue to not be pepto-bismally; it’s just luscious! Fun desk!


  2. Hi Susan, love the desk. I emailed you several. Months ago about your kitchen cabinets as I was about to start a kitchen for a client of mine. I am about to reveal her house in the next couple of weeks and I thought you might want to see what I did. I wanted to thank you for your responding to my questions about how they are with standing the wear. Thanks again, I enjoy your posts.
