I have been away most of the week at the lake water skiing and so I missed Friday at the Flea Market-my favorite day to go. I did however make it to the Flea on Sunday morning and I found this dingy dark desk/table.
This piece has great details and lines and I knew with some TLC it could be very pretty. I love how it looks like a table, then the top can be flipped open to reveal a desk.
I decided to go with light grey for the outside and white on the inside. Since the insides are hard to get to with a paintbrush I spray painted with flat white and then did the final coats with homemade chalk paint in Garlic Glove by Benjamin Moore. I mixed up a light grey homemade chalk paint for the outside. After the paint had dried I distresses and sealed the desk/table with dark wax/hemp oil on the outside and clear wax on the inside.
