I love trying new products...

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