Vintage Cottage Style Desk

By Kristina Tigue at Not Too Shabby in Murfreesboro, TN.

This beauty was once covered in spray paint and faux wood vinyl sheets. After tons of loving, she enters this world making a bold statement with her unique textures and demensions. To achieve this look, a custom mix of General Finishes Basil(3 parts) and General Finishes Antique White(1 part) was applied to the piece. To achieve the “aged” look, General Finishes Seagull Grey was applied using a dry brush technique, followed by applications of Dixie Belle’s Clear Wax and Brown Wax. New hardware, metal corner guards, and furniture appliqués were added to give her what she needed to shine again!
