A rustic black desk

Another week another day, a furniture makeover to share today.

My absolute favourite black paint #generalfinishes lamp black, makes another appearance today.

I use a bright location to photograph my pieces and always notice it sometimes makes the black finishes appear swirly but this paint is BLACK! and I used furniture wax instead of poly this time. It looks like Pottery Barn furniture. I love love it and Trevor just wants to paint everything black every time I use this paint. I keep walking back into the garage to look at it because it looks so nice now.

This desk used to be my grandfathers and is going to now be my sister-in-laws vanity. It was previously a tired maple finish with wood frill pieces attached to the top. I replaced the hardware with bone knobs and love the combination. 

i went with a lab, library styling on this piece and the glasses resting on the book actually belonged to my grandfather as well.


Have a great day everyone,
