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!
Fusion Roll Top Desk
here is before and after all in one shot
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
