This table sat too long in my shop... 
it was time for a makeover!

Rusty, dirty, and scratched.... The first thing I did was give it a good cleaning with Krud Kutter.

The next thing was a couple coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.

When the paint dried I got to work on my postal image...

I traced a circle onto the desk and using stencils and a Sharpie paint stick, I added the lettering.

The next step was to age the piece... I love using Rust-oleum decorative glaze....

The glaze gives it an antiqued finished as well as a protective coat.

While I was painting the desk I created areas of thick paint to create texture when it was glazed.

It creates a beautiful effect on the desk.

I repainted the rusty metal on the bottom shelf with a mixture I created of Barcelona Orange, Provence, and Graphite to create a brown that matched the brown metal paint on the desk. I protected the shelf with dark wax and the match to the legs was amazing!

The typewriter desk now has a beautiful image and antiqued finish.

And it quickly sold in the Homeroad Shop!
