Farmhouse Makeover

By Tracey M., Owner/Upcycler at Red Geranium Restorations in Gower, MO.

This previously oak rolltop desk and Windsor chair were begging for an update for their residence in a new farmhouse kitchen.  Enter General Finishes Snow White and Lamp Black for the winning combination!  The exterior was first painted in Rustoleum black and then painted in Snow White with details like the top and wood handles, as well as the interior, painted in Lamp Black.  The chair was also painted in Lamp Black.  The white of the desk only was lightly distressed to allow the black undercoat to come through for a bit of a rustic look.  The duo was protected with General Finishes' High Performance Top Coat in Flat for an understated farmhouse feel.
