The Perfect Mint Color and Herringbone Desk
I found this desk and I wanted to cry!!!!! Like seriously, I was sooo beyond excited about it! I knew I wanted to do something different, fun and cool with it. My client Sara was having me paint a kitchen table and chair for her and she picked the color mint! I found the MOST AMAZING color of mint and as soon as I started to paint her chairs I knew it was the perfect color for my new desk.
See what I mean about the perfect Mint Color
Here are the Desk Before Pictures
And here are the After Pictures
This color was a little bit of a trial and error I must be honest… This is what happened…
Also I am super excited about this new paint line by Behr Paint which you can find at Home Depot.
Its the new ALKYD SEMI-GLOSS ENAMEL.
Seriously Obsessed with it! It has the hard finish like an oil based paint would have but its water based. It has an amazing finish. Very professorial looking. I love it for my desk, my clients kitchen table and this weekend I will be painting all my bedroom furniture with it. I think it will be better for my high traffic pieces. Its a little more expensive then normal paint but I feel like I had to do less coats and it took less time when I use this paint. You don’t thin this paint which is nice. I used it through my sprayer and it worked like a dream. This product is a semi-gloss finish, but I really do think it will stand the test of time.
*I am no way paid by telling you about this product, I tell you because I really do love it this much*
Before I even started to paint the desk I sanded the top down using a 60 grit sand paper.
After sanding it I taped it off and then I primed it using Kiltz Prime Latex 2, which I also put through my spray gun .
