My mom found a great find for me at Goodwill and I couldn't wait to
paint it! She found this gem at Goodwill and I was so excited to paint
it I forgot to take a before picture! I was also excited because I knew
it would be a quick paint job using Annie Sloan paint. I love the
recipe I have found and started using for chalk paint and it is much
more affordable than using Annie Sloan's paint...but her paint is so
superior and fun to use when I can. Here is the Before:
And a really poorly lite picture of the After...You can hardly see the distressing but it is there I promise! You will see it better in the close ups.
I loved the color before but I wanted to neutralize it so it appealed to more people. Everyone loves gray with a little bit of orange"ish" red peeking out right? There is even a little yellow from the layer before. :)
This desk had obviously been painted several times. I love that look...
I wish I took more pictures because I did an awesome job distressing where little bums would have worn the seat down. :) I will have to do an update because it isn't quite finished. There is a little shelf/cubby underneath that you can store your books in but the shelf is missing. My father-in-law said he would help me fix that. So, when that is done I will update and show you the real "after".
