What is there about taking a worn out, beaten down piece of furniture and turning it into a one-of-a-kind treasure that appeals to me?
This is a desk I purchased a while back and brought to the shop and there it sat for many months.
Then one day we decided to transform it with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan.
Oh Yes! This makes my heart sing and this is what we did.....
First we used a 50/50 blend of Florence and Greek Blue to paint the exterior and used Paris Grey for the interior. After painting in our custom paint blend, we used a Graphite color wash on the entire exterior. This toned down the color and gave it a beautiful texture. We used several stencils to lay out our pattern in a random fashion. The stencil was done in our 50/50 mix of Florence/Greek Blue, Graphite and 50/50 mix of Old White/Pure White. The final step was using Annie Sloan Clear Wax for the perfect finish.
