This was a labor of love because it was a special gift for my mom.  She wanted a small simple desk, so I got to work.  I found this beautiful sofa table but new it would be perfect as a desk.  I already had a chair in my inventory that would look great with it so now it was time to make them pretty.  I chose Nantucket Green Chalk Style Paint as I did a previous piece for my mom in that color and she loved it.  I sanded the top down and kept it natural because the grain was beautiful.  I just added some shellac to make it bright and shiny.  The base I painted in Nantucket Green Chalk Style Paint and added High Performance Chalk Paint for added shine.  It was missing something; a light bulb went off and I decided to do a beautiful stencil in Lamp Black on the top.  It added a gorgeous, unique touch that I know my mom would love and she did.  I painted the chair in the same color and recovered the chair to match the stencil.  One of my favorite projects I did.
