Coastal Painted Desk in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence

I am currently trying to get our second child's nursery ready (due November 2016).  Part of that process means getting rid of some of my personal pieces!  I painted a desk in chalk type paint and sealed it with wax a few years ago.  It was looking very yellow and needed a fresh coat of white.

I chose Picket Fence, a bright coastal white from the Michael Penney Collection.

This was one of the easiest makeovers I've ever done.  I gently sanded down the top with fine grit sanding paper to take off some of the stains and gloss and vacuumed off the dust.

Then I painted the whole piece in one coat of Picket Fence. About 45 minutes after I painted the piece, I distressed it with some medium grit sand paper.

I let the piece dry overnight and then painted a second coat just on the top.  Since Fusion Mineral Paint doesn't require a topcoat for stain and water resistance, that was it! It took about 20 minutes!

This will be my go to coastal white color.

I just can't get over how good the Fusion white colors cover.  Do you have a piece you'd like to refresh?  Contact me (Taylor) for a free consultation on this easy to use products : )

I bought this desk for a specific place in my kitchen, and it is perfect. Love it!
I do have a question though—I use the desk/table frequently and am wondering if I should put a coat of wax on it. Thank you. Ellen

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
