|"Old and out dated"|
I have been procrastinating getting started on this, and I don't even know why. I don't mind painting with this paint, as it is so easy to clean up. I am using one of my favorites. CeCe Caldwells Myrtle Beach Beige. I am wanting a not too white look so it blends well with the tile in the kitchen.
|New and bright|
Two coats later, I am ready to do a light distress on it and then I finish with clear wax. I have found that Johnson's paste wax works really well, and since I had some at the house, I chose to use it.
|I went with different pulls..none match!|
I am so happy with the finished product. I also spruced it up with a few new pulls from my local Hobby Lobby. They were running their 1/2 off discount on the pulls, so that made the project even more fun. I love a bargain!!!
|Bottom pulls are matching|
I thought the new pulls would be a breeze to put on, but when an existing pull is on the 3" screw holes and the new ones (made in China) are 3-1/4" it takes a little longer, as you have to wallow out the hole a bit. After about an hour of carefully making the holes a little wider, I accomplished my new desk.
|Lighting is on, but will be changing very soon.|
I have another built in that is in the living room, that is about to get painted as well. I will take pictures when I am finished with it!!!! So, what have you painted lately?? Nothing, you say....well, get busy. Try the wonderful world of chalk and milk paints, you will love them.
|Can you see that outdated under counter light?|
PS....As I look at the pictures, I think I need to get rid of the very old under counter light that I can see in this picture. Just another little detail to make this project just right!
