Before & After

by - November 08, 2014

Remember that little wood desk I picked up last weekend?!  Here's the before:

And here's the after:
I almost threw in the towel for this project.  First, I tried to spray paint it white.  No good.  Then I used some old chalk paint that got a little gloopy.  No good.
Yesterday I picked up some fresh chalk paint and it covered my mess perfectly!  I used Omni Gel to add this great French graphic (courtesy of the Graphics Fairy) to the front.  I'm so glad I didn't have to toss it and that I have a pretty place to store some of my fabric pieces.
