Painted Desk

Hello Everyone!  Miss me?!  I have missed you... what a week!  This week was my first week painting at my new studio area in Chaffin Interiors... so I am not on a routine yet, doing more organizing than painting. See the post about my new studio... Fun News- Here we Grow Again!

My first project in the new studio is a Hammary Desk.  Here is the before...
He had some scratches and a loose spot to the left of the center drawer.  After a good cleaning with my Murphy's Oil Soap... I glued and clamped the loose spot and got to painting.  I chose some elegant greens that I just love for sophisticated pieces.  I used Coastal Colors Beach Chic Paint in AHA! for the neutral, then Seagrass for the legs, and Belmar for the top and drawers.

I love this color combination... but love it even more with a dark wax aging treatment.  
I wet distressed, applied clear wax, then added the dark...
Drawers before dark wax.

Drawers after dark wax... yummy!

Final desk.
