Thank so much for all of your kind and encouraging words after my last post. I certainly appreciate the love. You guys are the BEST!!!
Now on to the business at hand. This desk was finished about 2 months ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting it. Denise found it at a yardsale where it looked like this:
Not great, but it had a lot of potential. Dovetail drawers, nice hardware, pretty feet and loads of detail.
We painted the entire piece with A.S. Paris Grey.
We are very messy painters!
Then went over the drawer fronts and moulding details with A.S. Old White, followed by some light sanding and Minwax Dark Walnut stain over the entire piece, which I wiped off with a clean, soft cloth. Finally, a coat of clear wax was applied.
We also added crystal knobs to the middle drawer. Very happy with the results.
This desk is available for sale if anyone is interested. It will be coming with us to Clover Market in the Fall.
And here's a peak at our latest project.
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulicious weekend!!!
