For that cloffice I am working on my plan was to get myself a desk from IKEA. Not my vintage style but right for my pocket.
Well, YIPPY and skip that plan. I found myself a little treasure and the perfect LOVely desk for myself. Woooo hoooo!!!
Check her out.
I think she is a beauty and so much better than the cheapest of desks from IKEA. I paid $15 buckaroos for this gem.
Things I LOVe about her? She is chippy. Has a drawer for me to stash things away. Lots of shelves to pile on my supplies. And best of all? The perfect candidate for some chalk paint. For those of you not familiar with that type of paint (and no not black chalk board paint) drop it in that unknown thing called Google and look it up. Lots of LOVely pieces have been redone using chalk paint and I will let the others who've written about it give you the deets. Make sure to look at images too.
So, took out my Paris Grey and prettied her up.
I've been playing with chalk paint for the past month and estactic how this piece came out. I used dark wax but before applying experimented with using bee's wax. I wanted some dark wax to show through but not be prominant. Didn't splurge on the clear wax so used what I had in my supplies.
Worked really well and I LOVe how my sweet little girl turned out!
