I've taken the week off... with "nothing to do" (Tsk! Tsk!)
So I decided to do a (rather drastic) redo on this old writing desk
that we've had for more years than I can recall!
I did the original redo some twenty years ago: stenciled hearts,
olive green paint, checkerboard... cute, but boring!
The "after" was an application of Old Village satin paint: Black.
Then I sanded it down, applying a top coat
of FolkArt chalk paint: ultra matte Grotto.
Sanded that coat down with a whole lot of elbow-grease...
And then rag rubbed some Tsukinek Walnut Crystals Ink
into all of the worn, sanded corners, cracks and crevices!
