My good friend and best client, Diane (the one who loves and owns all of my metallic work) contacted me to say she was on the lookout for a cool desk. I happened to come across this very cool desk for a reasonable price at Goodwill, so the project was on!!
It’s got neato wood casters and everything!
Diane wanted it done to match her (twice) lovely Antiqued Champagne Gold Nightstands with dark walnut stained top, and I was more than happy to oblige. We have to keep these repeat customers happy!! ;)
I removed the weird little shelfy thingy someone had added in front of the peculiar little recessed center drawer. I painted the body of the desk with Krylon’s Carmel Latte Brushed Metallic Spray Paint, then glazed it with some Renaissance Brown Metallic Elegant Finish Glaze from Decoart. (I’m honing in my glazing technique. I picked up some great tips from my friend Mandie’s Altar’d Ebook, The Complete Guide to Painting Furniture.)
I picked up the knobs from Hobby Lobby (50% off this week, lucky me!) The top was stripped and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut Gel Stain and sealed with a couple coats of Verathane Satin Finish, topped off with a coat of Minwax Finishing Wax.
Those of you who haven’t already, I wanted to invite you to check out (and maybe follow?) my friend Cassie’s blog, Reuse Reinvent Redesign. She has fantastic style and dose some great furniture redo’s!! She’s in a big push to top 100 followers by year-end, and I know you ladies can help her out! Here’s her super cute living room:
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
