A desk in Icicle and Pocket Watch


It's time again for another Fab Furniture Flip! 



This month's contest is being sponsored by COUNTRY CHIC Paint.   The Theme this month was:  Bling Bling!   All participants including myself were given a free quart of paint and a free quart of their COUNTRY CHIC Metallic Cream

*Disclaimer:  I received 1 quart of their paint  and another of their metallic cream for use in this challenge. All opinions 100 %  my own. 





Found a French Provincial Desk at the flea market  and the Chavari chair at the GW and knew they  would be perfect for the contest.



Before:






Both of these pieces have great lines and are well built, so I knew the would be good projects for the contest.  


I ordered Country Chic's chalk paint in Icicle and metallic cream in Pocket Watch.  Lucky me also got a great paint brush and stirring sticks! 
I painted the desk in the Icicle color and I love the coverage and color of this paint!  The paint went on smooth and silky.  


While the paint was drying on the desk I painted the chair with two coats of the Pocket Watch and I LOVE the metallic Cream color and effect!  




While the chair was drying, I hand painted the details of the desk with two coats of the Pocket Watch.  



I sealed the desk with AS dark wax/linseed oil to give a bit of depth and patina. 

The last step was painting the hardware with the metallic cream paint and putting it back on.  

I am loving the soft blue and the gold together! 

I SO love the gold effect! 














I am so impressed with this paint the metallic cream!

  1. Wow, the icicle is a gorgeous shade of icy blue. I am not usually a fan of gold with blues, but this is a nice combo. Love the chair!
