On Saturday, my mom and I went down to St. Vincent de Paul looking for a desk, and I found the perfect one. This was $65 if we took it home that day. Unfortunately, we were unable to fit it in her car so we paid some guy $10 to follow us with the desk to my parent's house.
furniture pinterest board and looked for some inspiration. Here is the vanity inspiration piece we settled on:
Behr's Aqua Spray.
We only did one coat of the paint. I then mixed a gray wash with acrylic paint and water. I generously painted it over the desk and my mom did all of the wiping off.
Here are a couple detail pictures after the glaze:
We are loving the result! The glaze really brings out the little details. There are still a couple of things that need to be done (clear coat, buy new knobs, etc) so stay tuned for some pics of the final.
On a side note: I'm moving to a new apartment this week. Wood flooring, lots of windows, first floor, garage space...
basically everything I was looking for. I'm very excited about it and I will post some pictures when I get in there.
