I found this great desk at the Flea Market last week and knew it could be beautiful with a little paint.
It was missing a knob and had a very ugly laminate top with some major dings. I tried to remove the laminate top-I was envisioning a smooth wood top and painted base. I couldn't remove it and so I filled in the dings with filler and got out my paint. I made up some home made chalk paint in Garlic Glove by Benjamin Moore and painted away. Since the desk was so dark to start with I needed to paint many coats of white. Luckily for me the day was sunning and beautiful and the paint dried so fast. I wanted the desk to be solid white and the knobs to be the pop of color. After painting I distressed the desk and sealed it with AS clear wax. I added turquoise knobs and I love how it turned out.
