Chalk Paint Desk

Excuse the grainy pic. It was taken with my phone in bad overhead lighting (boo). Anyways, here is the before pic of my old work desk. Since I quit, I haven't really used it at all. I prefer to work on the couch, in the chair, in bed, anywhere but a desk. Ha! I remember I mentioned the Annie Sloan chalk paint? Well, I bit the bullet and finally got some. I decided to try out this piece first b/c I'd like to sell it.

TA DA! I love that you really see the detail under the drawers. I used Old White with two coats of the clear wax.

I thought about keeping it b/c I think it looks pretty stinkin' good BUT I want get a china cabinet (to paint) so I simply don't have enough room in the house for it anymore.

Here's a detailed shot of the piece. I sanded a few spot here and there for a tiny distressed look. I'll be posting it on Craig's List soon. Fingers crossed that I sell it so I can get the cabinet!
