Hi everyone. Welcome to my Blog.
I am so glad to see you back checking in with me to see whats going on in my Ladybug's Garden.
Today I am going to show you my reveal of my $20 Thrifty Find Craft Center. I bought the hutch top for $20 and a lady gave the desk bottom free. I love free or cheap don't you?
This is my first project job using ASCP.
Here we go, getting my supplies out. Paint and brush. Thats right nothing else! There is no sanding and priming before using this paint..Yahooo I love this idea! I always love easy, quick.
Three different colors. Top yellow, desk top white, desk stained.
Top painted ASCP Old White
Painted the top hutch first. OLD WHITE ASCP
What is nice is if you get any paint on the glass, it just wipes off with a wet cloth. I love this...
SO NO TAPPING!
Excuse my yogurt ops......A girl get hungry while painting..
Next painted the bottom desk.
This is a big desk. I choose it because it is deep and when I put the hutch on top,
I still had plenty of work area for my sewing machines.
When the paint is dry it feels kinda flat and ruff.
Waxing makes the beauty come out of the piece!
I think of my craft center like the ugly duckling and the swan of Chalk Paint..
Finished painting..Now comes the waxing and buffing.
I picked ASCP Clear Wax for my project.
I had a nice duster so I used this.
But you can use almost any soft cloth to buff.
I put wax on the entire craft center.
It changes the color of the Old White some what.
Sand lightly or as much as you want it to look like.
Next I lightly sanded the areas to make it look distressed and old worn looking. As I sanded I kept a wet cloth and wiped after. You get little dust because of the waxing.
I sanded the edges, legs and around the knobs and key hold.
Lightly sanded in areas you might rub in daily use.
She has pretty legs!
See her pretty legs sanded lightly.
I added new knobs..
The desk has two pull out writing drawers. I love these and left so I left them the stained color.
I can use these for cutting or crafts etc while sitting at my desk.
