Classic Black Desk Makeover
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?
If you liked this, please consider pinning it and sharing it with your friends!
The black was a stunning color choice!
This turned out really cute! I love the frame that you sat on it!
I love your black desk (saw it on Tater Tots & Jello). I have a piece I’m thinking about painting black, so I had to take a closer look. Thank you for the inspiration.
Looks great and that art print really is the icing on the cake!
An oldie but a goodie! Love the choice of black. It made it so classy!
