I knew just how I wanted this desk to look!  Had it pictured in my mind for quite awhile.  It did take longer than I thought, but mission accomplished!  This is a super sturdy desk and is finished on all sides, so it doesn't have to be placed against a wall!  You can be proud to have this sit out in an open space.

I just took this  desk to my booth at the Georgetown Peddler's Mall located inside on far left.  This was painted using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  First everything was painted using Greek Blue, then Graphite on edges and trim.  I distressed the trim using a wet rag so the blue shows through.  Then I made a Graphite color wash that was applied and wiped off the Greek Blue.  That toned the brightness of this blue color down considerably.  This desk has  finished front and back so it doesn't have to be placed against a wall.  I used Polycrylic on the drawers, front,  back,  and sides, with a clear wax on top.  This is a steal at $195.00.
