Lately I have been stepping out of my comfort zone when it comes to painting. It started with creating a shade of green I fell in love with. Then I decided to do a colorblock pattern on a few dressers. I knew I wanted something bold so I decided to do something -- an asymmetrical two-tone. I refinished half of the drawers and the legs with a custom mix of General Finishes Antique Walnut and Java Gel Stain. The rest of the desk was primed with General Finishes Stainblocker before I painted the rest in Antique White.  I finished the piece by sealing it with my favorite topcoats, General Finishes Flat Out Flat Topcoat and General Finishes Gel Topcoat. I love how this desk is both bold and classy!
