On Saturday I tackled another chalk paint project.
This little desk.
So I mixed up more chalk paint with good old plaster of paris. The same 1 part plaster of paris to 2 parts paint worked well. If the color I made for the desk looks similar to this table I did that is because I used the same left over samples to mix up a nice silver grey. I painted the whole desk in the grey but thought it needed some flair. So I taped off a square on the top with painters tape.
and one down at the bottom as well.
I mixed up a nice buttery yellow for them since I've been thinking about introducing some yellow to our master bedroom for a while now.
I put a coat of minwax over the whole thing, put on new knobs and here she is in her new glory.
So there you have it! I did a happy dance when I finished this desk. Isn't it nice when something comes out better than you expected? I'm so pleased to have this pretty little thing to blog at.
A Warm Home she is a super talented artist, cook and crafter and I'll no doubt be getting some great inspiration from her and some serious laughs as well. Make sure to give her blog a visit!
