Little grey desk..

Well, after that whirlwind trip meeting Annie, I came home so excited to get painting BUT I still had the bug pretty bad..This past weekend I did drag out an older piece I had in my stash that I felt was just screaming Paris Grey! (My hubby & Youngest even felt well enough to garden...Who wouldn't pass on free child labor?!)

 I did all the usual steps that I always do BUT I did try out something a little different..For the top instead of waxing it and since I don't have Annie's Lacquer yet..I used my good ole' wipe on poly.

 Worked like a charm..I also kept all the origial hardware, I just went over them very lightly with Old White and did a wipe back of the paint with a damp cloth after they had dried for an hour or so. I think it came out purrty cute! It's a smaller desk, and would be perfect in a little girls room. Matter of fact my oldest is eyeing it! ;)

 Thanks for stoppin' by!~



  1. Your Paris inspired desk turned out gorgeous. Thanks for sharing:)

  2. I think it turned out purrty cute too! I really need to try that trick with the hardware.

  3. it looks beautiful! i love the hardware and colors. and i love wipe on poly!

  4. Shut the Door!! I redid the EXACT desk!!!

    That is too funny! Check it out!

    It's such a fun cute little desk! Where did you get yours? I got mine at Goodwill for 14 $.

    1. @ Tulip Row
      YES! They are the same desks, hahahahha I like the opacity of the color you chose! Wish I had paid $14 :( though..I bought this as a set Dresser/night stand and desk for $100 bucks..so probably worked out to be about $30 bux or so..Great Job!

    2. Great job - love the colors you chose!
      I would love if you stopped by to my Creative inspirations Linky Party opening late tonight to link this up! I would love to have you there!
