Perfectly Painted furniture

Who likes to paint furniture? We definitely do!!! We’re always chasing that perfectly aged and distressed look!

This darling vintage desk is painted in an old Martha Stewart paint color called hummingbirdblue. After the blue hummingbirdblue paint dried, we added a very light coat of a creamy white paint, which we sanded almost completely off. After sanding and distressing the desk, we finished it off with a small amount of Valspar antiquing glaze. A little antiquing glaze goes a LONG way. The thing that we most love about painting furniture is that you can always sand a little more, add a little more paint, or add a little more glaze until you get your piece to the point that you absolutely love it! We love the way this piece turned out, and if we ever grow tired of the paint job, well…we’ll just paint it again!
