I have been waiting to find a small desk that I could paint in MMS Apron Strings milk paint. I have done a few pieces in this color and I love it so much I was wanting to paint more. I found this desk at the local Flea Market and knew it was coming home with me.
I sanded down the top because it was pretty gross and needed it, and then I waxed it with AS dark wax--I love the buttery finish the wax leaves. I also did not like the fact the the two drawers had two knobs each so I filled in the holes with wood putting.
I mixed up MMS Apron Strings and started to paint away. I didn't really want it to chip this time so I added some bonding agent. The last steps were to dark wax the entire desk and distress. After drilling new holes in the drawers I added some glass knobs I had on hand.

|The top is so much better now!|
