My New Secretary

I hope you are all having a beautiful week!!  It is a really nice around just makes me love summer even more! this is my project that I had been working on.  I am so mad at myself for not taking a before picture of it. I bet you can imagine just a wood desk, no paint, nothing on it.  I am excited how it turned out and I am very excited that it fits perfectly where I wanted it.  Now it hides all my papers that I am always overloaded with!  It also fits, the kids little shoes, mittens, hats, and scarfs when winter comes again.

All I did was lightly sand before and I used a really cheap flat paint, and I have to say that I liked the look.  It almost looked like annie sloan paint.  I did put about 3 coats of paint on, but I feel like if I would of primed it, it still would of been 3 coats total anyway.  Then I used a minwax paste instead of poly....and that turned out great!  I love that it isn't too shiny!!  Anyways have a good one..until next time Kim
