NEW GRAY DESK

Here is a picture of the desk I got for a steal before. She is not much to look at. She had seen her day; there were scratches and gum and nail polish on her. So I got to work.

I got to priming and priming....and priming...:)

It was when I was priming her, that I decided on her color. I still had not decided, but when I saw her with that primer gray, I thought; this looks really cool and classy.

So I went and got the Gray paint and started painting, and painting, and painting...:)

Then I sprayed and lacquered the handles a satin black; and distressed the desk. I just love how classy she turned out. Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

Love your gray paint color!
What brand and color are you using?

I have used Pratt and Lambert's 'Gravel' (French-y city grey), and 'Contemplation' (a bluer country French blue).

Yours posts inspire me daily. Thank you!

Yours,
Jeffrey

Your desk is lovely! Love how you stress about priming! I'm starting to take more and more care to do it, but I get alittle ahead of myself some time. (Too anxious to see the lovely after shot, I guess)
