I found this DESK ORGANIZER the other day when I was out Thrift Shopping.
I thought it had potential. Any wood, even cheap wood
will look great with a coat of chalk paint.
I needed to clean it up, just a wipe down with a soft cloth.
A little bit of wood glue in a couple spots.
Then a bit of sanding with #200 sandpaper, and
another wipe down.
I got out the supplies needed to paint.
I went over to Joanne's Fabrics to get some paint and I saw this set of brushes
and I thought I would give them a try.
The brush on the left is for stenciling or chalk paint.
The brush on the right is for wax. Easy clean up with soap and water.
I painted the entire organizer with Adirondack White Chalk Paint.
The brushes worked well.
I gave it 2 coats it some places, and left some places with a bit of the dark wood showing.
I painted inside the drawer, and on the underside.
I moved it around from desk to desk-
and moved it again.
To the Kitchen
and then back to the desk again.
AND another desk!
