This little desk was plain, drab, and needed a punch. As soon as I saw the flat drawerate I knew I wanted to go bold and stencil. With the base and drawers painted in a homemade chalk paint, this beauty had a need for something fun on the top. Enter General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The base of it is Java gel, with a wash of white chalk paint and dry brushing of 2 different shades of grey. This beauty is a favorite of mine!
