Roll Top Desk with Typewriter

4:00:00 PM

I love trying new products...

Today I'm working on a roll top desk using 
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint
in Typewriter using the bonding agent.


This small roll top desk was adorable to 
begin with but I knew that painting it black 
would make it fantastic!

I love Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint 
so I'm trying it with the bonding agent 
today because I didn't want the chippy look 
on this project.


The paint went on smoothly and covered well in
two coats... No chipping but I did have some
white residue when the paint was wet which when
I brushed it in went away. 

Possibly a little too much bonding agent.
I never measure which is why I'm not a very good cook.


When the paint was dry I waxed the desk with clear wax.

I added white glass knobs and I'm thinking 
about this drawer liner... 

after all, the color is called Typewriter...


This cute little roll top desk is now an awesome little roll top desk.
