Last night I tried to figure out how to personalize my blog. Where's DIL Lucy when I need her? Today I finished a desk. I don't have a before picture but you can imagine what it looked like - light colored paint with gold trim. You've seen this desk a million times. If you were lucky you had one when you were younger. I bought it from a lady who had it when she was growing up. I didn't have the heart to tell her I would be painting over it. I'll let her believe that her "beautiful" bedroom set is living out it's days untouched in my bedroom.
Anyway, I used ASCP Provence and Old White with clear wax. Somewhere in blogland, I read about Buff and Rub. I used silver on the trim (it's hard to see in the photos) and the hardware. It was fun and easy and it comes in several colors.
