It's that time of year again. The time where we relearn what it takes to buckle down and study and make the grade! The girls are all back at it, and hitting the books hard! So far, so good, and it doesn't happen by accident or without a lot of dedication.
on Lake Girl Paints. I asked Deb if she would mind if I tried out her tutorial directions on this piece and she graciously encouraged me to give it a go! Deb's table was so bright and fun. For this piece I wanted it to blend with the Paris Gray chalk paint and I toned my colors down a bit with a light wash over the top and, because I could, I used a bit of silver metallic in the wax to make the top shimmer a bit. Lake Girl Paint's texture blast table is the matching table to my chess table redo, and it still took me months to figure out that she lives not far from me and we evidently shop at the same thrift store! :-) I LOVE her techniques and finishes. Check her out!
You know what the best part of this is....I have 3 more of these desks just waiting for some TLC. I have big plans for the next one. Oh yes I do! Check back often so you can see what I end up doing with desk #2!
Have a super fine week!
