Striped Desk in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
This plain desk gets an eye catching makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite and Old White.
I scored this desk for super cheap on Craigslist!
I used 3" wide masking tape to tape off my stripes after I painted the entire desk in Graphite, then I painted between the tape with Old White.
After painting, I lightly sanded the desk with a fine sanding sponge. I used Clear wax seal the paint then buffed it by hand with an old t shirt.
I replaced the original drawer pulls with these Martha Stewart Awning Cup Pulls for a more modern look.
