One main point that I try to make through All Things Thrifty is that no one should be afraid to paint over wood. Yes, I said PAINT over wood. Sometimes I think this is the biggest hang up for people. They think, well, I don’t like it, but it is a wood/oak/mahogany color that is in good shape.
This is my advice. If you don’t like the color, who cares if it is wood. PAINT IT.
Amanda did just that. She primed the bad boy with KILZ first.
Then she painted it a color called “La Fonda Turquoise” not sure of the brand.
Then she stenciled the front! LOVE THIS DETAIL!
And then she glazed it to give that extra little punch of professional detail.
I am in love. I wish this desk was in my house…right now.
Hop on over to her blog and give her some LOVE!
