Chalk Painted Antique Secretary Desk


This antique desk was customized for a lady named Angela. She had stored it in her garage for several years since it was in need of repair and refinishing. When she discovered my Facebook business page she inquired whether I could refinish the desk for her and sent me a couple of photos of a similar desks painted black. I painted the desk with Behr flat latex paint and paint transformer powder, sanded the front foldout top and the compartments inside down to natural wood, and sealed the entire desk with clear wax. I purchased new drawer pulls and matching brass key holes from a furniture restoration company, to suit the character of the desk. She absolutely loved the revived desk!
