Welcome back again my Beauties!
I am on a bit of a roll with makeovers since I was motivated with the last one which you can see HERE!
So I decided to tackle this free desk that has been in my garage for a few months.
The top finish was worn and chipping off.
I was trying to figure out how to fix the top and was suddenly inspired.
I used a wood filler on all the parts that grooved from scratches and then decided on my color scheme.

I decided I wanted to modernize this desk since it was so plain.
I grabbed my General Finishes milk paint in Lamp Black and Snow white and started painting. 
I used lamp back on the top and then used a 1 to 1 ratio of lamp black and snow white to make a gray for the base of the desk.
When the top was dried I decided to use my fun new stamp that I bought.

Its called the CUBANO TILE stamp from Iron Orchid designs.
I used my snow white paint and a paint roller on the stamp kind of like you use a brayer and kept the paint light and then just stamped away.

Honestly, I even surprised myself with how much I loved this.
The white playing off the black really gave this piece some life.

I am loving the more modern feel of the piece.

I never would have thought a simple stamp and black and white paint would have transformed this piece this much.
