The Black Spinet Desk

A few weeks ago I found a great old spinet desk at a local thrift store and brought it home.  

I love the shape and the details of this type of desk and knew this one could be a beauty again with a little bit of help from my paintbrush.  

I mixed up my own chalk paint using Plaster of Paris and black flat paint by Benjamin Moore.  

I painted the desk with 2 coats of paint and then lightly distresses it and sealed it with AS dark wax.  
Love the legs! 

I love that it can be a table or a desk! 

I really love this spinet desk, but it is ready for a new home!
