Fusion Roll Top Desk

31K Views
My daughter chose this replica antique roll top desk for her birthday present. It was an ugly orangy stain color, so boring and blah, she chose a warm white with her very favorite color inside to pop!

The warm white is Fusion Mineral paints champlain and the inside is their soft green called Laurentian

the whole pieces was sand paper distressed to add character and keep aged looking

and to add even more dimension and depth I used homestead house's, Fusion's parent company, dark wax in espresso

shown here is the great paint coverage as the champlain goes on, it took 2 coats and the coverage was smooth and silky as it is self leveling

here is the insides completely un assembled ready for the soft green paint to go on. it made it far easier to take everything apart, all hardware off to give a perfectly hassle free application

then it was all put back together once two coats were dry and distressed as well, hardware put back on and good to go, another neat thing is the whole assembled piece can go in this way or upside down for a different layout, just flip the drawers and walaa

    Amazing how the light paint color shows off the details of the desk. Did you have to sand the desk down prior to painting?

    So many of these refurbished PAINTED projects end up looking cheap and horrible, but not this one. It's actually an improvement. Great job!
