Ombre Desk With Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
A friend of mine texted me a picture of this desk and asked if I wanted to save it from his burn pile at his farm. I, of course, answered YES! He even delivered it. What a guy! It definitely needed a lot of work and was in pretty bad shape but I didn’t think it was worth torching. Take away the dozens of dinosaur stickers (you should have seen the back), add some fun paint color, fix the drawer and attach some new hardware and it would be the perfect school desk!
Teal is so popular right now and Annie Sloan’s Provence Chalk Paint is so gorgeous so I decided to do an ombre of Provence on the drawers and Paris Grey over the top.
I painted the top drawers in Provence. The middle drawers were painted in a mixture of 1/2 Provence and 1/2 Old White and the bottom drawers were painted in a mixture of 1/4 Provence and 3/4 Old White. The body of the desk was painted in Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey. The entire desk was distressed and waxed. I will definitely do more ombre in the future! I love how it turned out.
