Custom Desk

This sweet desk had been well loved and in my client’s family for many years.  Here is the only “before” photo I have which shows just the top of the desk while open.

My client knew she wanted some shade of blue and after seeing the Country Chic Paint color Elegance on another one of my pieces, requested that.  It’s a very pretty greenish/blue and is quickly becoming one of my favorite hues to work with. I started by wiping down the desk and removing the hardware.  I then painted a thin coat of Elegance over the entire desk and once dry, applied a second coat.  I next sanded the piece with fine grit sand paper focusing on the edges and details.  I finished the desk with two coats of clear wax followed by a gentle buffing.  The original hardware was put back on and the piece was done!

My client loves the new look of her desk and says it will remain in her family for many more years to come!
