Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Liquorice, Natural Wax, and Tough Coat to give this handsome desk a refurbished, retro look!

Hello!

I am popping in today to show you how I refinished this handsome retro black desk!

This desk certainly wasn’t in the best condition to start, so I gave it a light sanding to prep it. I sanded the top right down, stained it, and then gave it two coats of Tough Coat. I like to sand very lightly with 220 grit between coats. This isn’t a necessary step, but gives it such a nice smooth finish.

For the bottom of the desk, I gave it two coats of Liquorice. When it was fully dry I lightly sanded the edges to distress it just a bit. I gave it two coats of Natural Wax to seal it. I added some vintage looking bin pulls to really add to the retro feel. Such a handsome makeover on a once very dated desk!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
