Light Grey, Antique Style Desk Makeover

This sweet little desk is on its 2nd makeover by Abbey from Painted Home Goods. We think she nailed it with this new, light, neutral finish!

I had actually painted this table before in a dark green that I loved but unfortunately didn’t sell…and that’s okay!

To reach a wider range of buyers I decided to go with a neutral look using Country Chic Paint in the color, Lazy Linen.

I only needed two coats for excellent coverage over the dark green which just goes to show just how great Country Chic Paint is! I finished with Limestone glaze and Cedar Antiquing Dust to make the details (my favorite part) stand out.

It seems a neutral look was just what this table needed since it found a new home right away!
