Vintage Ficks Reed Desk & Chair Makeover

Our navy pieces are flying out the door faster than we can paint them. So when we stumbled upon this outdated Ficks Reed desk and matching chair (so rare to find a matching chair nowadays) we knew that it would look spectacular in old navy.

The desk and chair were in desperate need of a new layer of paint and the cushion had to go. We also wanted the faux-bamboo detailing to be showcased with a lovely white trim. Check out the finished product:

The chevron detailing on the fabric gives the seat cushion an edgy look and ties in with the navy and white desk. We also gave the hardware a new layer of gold paint that really makes it pop.
