I found this adorable desk at a yard sale in the cutest little neighborhood. I loved the lines and simplicity with the detailed legs. I thought it had awesome potential and boy, was I right!
I sanded it down, primed it with Kilz Latex. This was the first time I used primer with my HVLP gun and I’m hooked! It worked soooo well and left a smooth beautiful surface to paint! Hooray!
Then, I have it a coat of Glidden Onyx Black in Semi Gloss.
I cleaned the knobs and pulls and left them original because I really liked the contrast of the brass and black. Very Pottery Barn-esque don’t ya think!?
After I sprayed a couple coats, I waxed it with Minwax Paste Finishing Wax. I love that stuff. It leaves the smoothest finish!
I put it up for sale but my good friend, Kate snatched it up for her office area in her salon! It looks perfect in there!
What do you think!? I really love bright, fun, colorful furniture but there is something special about a classic black piece. Don’t you think?
