Sports Theme Redos

This desk was from the first auction I went to.  
My husband has been painting pieces here and there and wanted to paint the desk. He is a huge Giants fan and painted the door leading from our garage to our basement in Giants colors. 
That was his inspiration for these redos.  We live in PA, so he went with PA teams instead of the Giants.
Apparently Lowes has all sports team colors on file for you to get the colors mixed easy.  He used Eagles green, black and grey mixed into homemade chalk paint.
On the front drawer he added the team logo and it is actually a key chain that he got a local sports store and found the large sticker on the side at Wal Mart.  He did not distress (not his style) and waxed it with Minwax Finishing Paste.
He also painted a chair to match.  The chair was a roadside freebie.  We always have one or two laying around and it just makes it easier for a desk sell if you have a chair to match it.  

Right after he painted the desk, he chose to paint this small dresser that I got at the hoarder garage sale in the Phillies team colors.

This time he primed first and painted with latex paint without making into chalk paint.  I figured since he doesn't like to distress there is no point in using it as chalk paint.
The original knobs were floral so he replaced all but two with wood knobs he painted and then used the baseball knobs I got at the Salvation Army.  This dresser is really small, so he just used a small team sticker.  

These two pieces are going to make a little sports fan really happy!
