Abbey from Painted Home Goods chose Cobblestone to update this beautiful, Goodwill-find desk!

I haven’t been doing a very good job keeping to the “only small projects while pregnant” rule I set for myself. This desk was under $20 at Goodwill and I couldn’t leave it behind. All it needed was a quick update, easy enough with Country Chic Paint!

After removing the old handles and doing a little cleaning I painted one coat of Cobblestone, a warm, medium gray, and sealed with natural wax. I distressed fairly heavily before adding new handles for an updated look. I kept things simple but could have done for a more dramatic look with antique or gray wax; Cobblestone is a very versatile color that can easily be manipulated to fit any design style. Gray is the new favorite neutral, after all!

Abbey {Painted Home Goods}

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
