White & Mahogany vintage desk

Well, I must be on my meds!
I'm quite the the poster this week huh'?...And it's only Tuesday!!

I apologize for the lack of before picts... =/  but I wanted to share a nice antique "Angeles Furniture Company" 
Desk I picked up.





Some inside shots..


hmmm.. with or with out the mirror?...




I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in "Old white". (Which you can buy from my rock star stockist Debbie ;) )
I refinished the top using "Restore A finish", since it was in pretty good shape, and sealed it with bees wax. The legs and sides were Stained and distressed using my mash up technique of clear and dark wax. So, that's it in a nutshell...

Hope ju' likey!
Gracias!

  11. I love this! You started with great bones and it only got better. Love the typewriter sitting on top, but I think it's better without the mirror.
    Great job.

  14. It's lovely. I think I like it without the mirror better though. The mirror should go on a dresser in a different color maybe, for some contrast. Great job!
