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.
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 : )
