Cute Spindle Legs!

I've been out of commission the past week or two, helping my daughter with her new baby.  Now that I'm back home, it's time to get some projects finished.  I'd sold a few things in the shop while I was out of town so I needed some things I could pull together quickly.


I did quite a bit of junking while I was gone and found this cute spindle leg desk.  It was already painted white.  I just thought it needed an update with some color.  So I painted the top in ASCP Duck Egg.  ARRG!  Forgot the "before" shot again!  So imagine the top white!




I did some distressing, clear wax, and dark wax glaze.  It's just so much better!




I need to get back in the saddle ASAP!  I'm back to work in two weeks and I'm not sure how much time I'll have to paint!!

Congrats on the new grandbaby! This table, like everything you do, is beautiful. Can I ask your advice on painting something? I have NEVER painted or stained a piece of furniture in my life, so I am a total newbie. I just purchased a desk at my local thrift store that I plan to use for crafting. I believe it is real wood, not MDF, and it is sort of an "unfinished" pine colored wood. I have a shabby chic theme going on so I would like to paint it and I am thinking that chalk paint is probably the right way to go, would you agree? I have very severe health problems and I don't have anyone to help me, so I figured chalk paint would provide me with the least amount of prep and give me a beautiful finish. Do I have to sand or prep in any way before using it? Do I need multiple colors to achieve a distressed look? How about wax? Any help or guidance you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated. If I lived anywhere near you, believe me, I would be hiring you! Thanks so much!

What a cute piece of furniture. I saw one in a shop not too long ago with that same kind of base but it had a rectangular top. Tooo cute- xo Diana

Love the desk it is really pretty, and goes well with the chairs. I was tickled when I see the fabric you have on the chairs is the fabric I am using in my master bedroom! Fell in love with it all over again. A very pretty vignette! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best - you helped to make it a great partay!

What a darling little desk. I'm always amazed at what a little paint can do to a ho hum piece. It's as cute as can be with it's new facelift.
