I was looking for another chance to use that beautiful Blue Ocean Breeze (Krylon) color on another piece. (See the dresser I originally painted in this color here.)
I already had a desk that would work, but it had an 80's look (minus the big hair).
I took the time to primer this piece because the finish was so smooth I thought the paint wouldn't stick. Honestly, it was a waste of time and primer. Even though I was wanting a clean look, I would've preferred all of the distressing to come through with the wood color than the white of the primer. (Live and learn!)
I glazed it a little and that helped.
This was the inspiration peice - a writing desk from Home Decorators.
This is going to look great in my "room of requirement" - it becomes whatever I need it to be! (yes, a Harry Potter reference - what can I say, I have three boys!!)
Do you think I should glaze, or distress a little more? I may end up with new pulls as well, aren't accessories are always a dilemma?
This table was FEATURED! WOO HOO!
