I worked incredibly hard today and I am incredibly tired tonight. The day started at 6:30 am when my sons woke me up. The entire family got ready and we headed out for a morning of yard sales. I found some great things, which I’ll share in another post, and came home about noon. After hanging out with the boys for a bit, our babysitter came over and the painting frenzy began. I have lots to share, but it will all happen in another post. Tonight, I’m going to share a desk I finished last week.
This is how it started…
I painted it in Annie Sloan’s Louis Blue with Old White on the body. The top was stripped and refinished in a dark walnut stain and Fiddes Wax.
I chose to keep the original hardware, since it was in good condition and still worked with the painted piece.
Some light distressing prior to waxing, brought out the detail.
I brought it to my pavilion at Lucketts on Thursday.
