Last week I went to an estate sale and bought this Drexel desk. It is solid wood except for the top center, which is a laminate:
I wanted to update it a bit, so I taped off the laminate and painted it heirloom white and glazed it with a "made-up concoction" of tan, brown and taupe. I also added some stripes around the top edge and then distressed it:
Our local dollar store recently sold small cans of spray paint (4/$1.00), specifically for cars, and I sprayed the drawer handle in bronze:
The next project was an old coffee table I bought last year at Goodwill. I tried my new AS chalk paint and I am now sold on this paint! 1 1/2 coats of paint, without any sanding or priming - - it couldn't get any easier. I also distressed it and found that as you sand, it sands the paint off in a powder, unlike latex, which sometimes comes off in a strip (because I never let it dry long enough!)
Two projects completed in just a two days!
