Furniture Friday...Little Look at My Stuff for Junk Days!

This desk has seen a little bit of a makeover....


Here is the before....

VERY solid, sturdy and well built!
But, screaming for some LOVE!




A little shabby chic love coming right up!



This desk was hand painted ever-so-carfully quickly...by me during nap time!
I used a creamy white paint...and mixed it with some un-sanded grout and warm water...
making my own, homemade Chalk-Like Paint.

Then I roughed it up a bit with my sander...distressing in naturally worn areas for an authentic look.



Then, I cleared her with a kiss...a kiss of polyurethane!

The hardware is all original...and kinda cute, I thought???


This desk is headed with me to Clovis Glorious Junk Days this Sunday, May 26th...come see me!

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!!!  Woot woot...it's Friday!!!

Love & Junk~
Julie
