Antique Desk

I picked up this antique desk at Goodwill.  I decided to cover the leather inlay on the top with chalkboard paint.  I sanded the top down and then taped off the edges and primed and painted with chalkboard paint.  I then stained the wood around the top with Minwax Dark Walnut.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "French Linen" for the rest of the desk.  I then distressed and waxed.  This desk sold before I even had my space set up at Mama's Happy

Also, a huge thank you to Elizabeth And Co. for featuring my two tiered side table!  Click over to the site to see other great features as well!
