Two Tone Desk

Hi ladies and gents!  
I finally have a before and after for you!  
It's been a while.  
Summer is really sucking the project time right out of me!  But here she is...

The desk before...minus the drawers which I think I was staining as I remembered to take a before pic.


I sanded the whole piece then stained the drawers in this....

And painted the shell of the desk in this.....

Glidden Seal Gray- color matched in Behr Plus paint (I like it cause it is paint and primer in one)

And here is the after...

And here are a few to see it without all the junk on top!

I loooooove the drawers on this.  

Hope you all like!  
I'm going to be putting it in my Class and Trash space soon.  
It's still a little tacky on top from the poly so I may wait a day or two.  
I'll let you know when I drop it!  

Happy Thursday everyone!

  2. Hey Erin, What are the paint colors on your wall? And how much are you selling this for? I love it, just trying to think of a place to put it....

  3. So pretty!! I love the wood tone with the grey!

  4. I love this! I've seen two-toned with white, but it's cool to see two-toned with another color. :)

  5. I love that you kept the natural wood for the drawers, looks great!

  6. Gorgeous! I love the mix of gray and wood tones!

  7. I am dying over how great the natural wood tone looks with the grey! I'm planning to do something similar with my desk soon.

  8. The paint was latex right? What kind of poly did you use? I have a desk that I painted a chevron pattern on top with white and teal (mermaid treasure to be, but our clear coat seriously yellowed the colors. I sanded it down and repainted but I've got anxiety about clear coating it again. Any advice?

  9. It looks fantastic! I love the drawers, too.
