School Desk, Annie Sloan Paris Grey and Wax
This desk is a garage sale find. There were two but unfortunately one was used as a bench for cutting wood and the front edge was cut off along with the board in questions.
This is my first ASCP on furniture using the finish of dark wax over clear wax and chalk paint. I used a sand sponge to clean the desk of varnish chips and dust after giving it a good dry brush scrub to remove the spider eggs and webs.
This project, spaced over three days, took an estimated 3-4 hours to complete.
