MMS Tricycle Red Farm desk/table

Once again I was at one of my local thrift stores and came across a  small table/desk.  It had seen better days, but I knew it could be beautiful again.

The top needed some TLC!
I wanted to keep the top wood and was picturing red in my head.  Out came my sander and the dust started to fly!  After sanding I waxed the top with AS dark wax and love the buttery feel.

I painted the legs and sides with Miss Mustard Seed Tricycle Red milk paint---LOVE it!

 I got out my scraper and scraped away for the chippy look.

I added a ceramic knob I had in my stash

This piece went to a local shop!
