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! ;)
