This vintage school desk caught my eye because it had an original ink well and pen groove.
I painted the main body of it in Annie Sloan Arles chalk paint, and treated the lid with six coats of Annie Sloan UNWAXED graphite. This made the lid useable as a chalk board for writing messages, making notes or doodling on.
I wanted to add some trendy design to it so I chose several brights and pastels to make some wedge shapes and angles of colour all over the surface and I finished the overall treatment with a few metallics.
The colours continue inside to desk too with a painted interior and white spray painted metal legs.
