Bennett - A restored mid-century modern office desk


Drumroll please... introducing "Bennett."

Remember a week or so ago, I picked this little guy up at Goodwill? Let me remind you...
Yes, Goodwill is a bit messy!

I used a homemade chalk paint recipe out of Behr Midnight Dream. Like I said before, I have plans to complete a more thorough chalk paint comparison in the future. I'll keep you posted. I don't really have enough info for a thorough analysis yet.
After two coats of the blue, I distressed, applied Annie Sloan clear wax, then taped off the white stripes. I used Behr Off White for the stripes.

After distressing and waxing again, I added the AS dark wax to age it up a bit. That's when the piece really popped!
I kept the original brass hardware and just polished it up a bit.
I'm really happy with the results. Perfect for a boy's room or even a bachelor pad! He looks rich and sophisticated. 
Bennett has already found a home. He was sold before I had a chance to place the ad. And the best part is that he is staying in the family, so I can visit him anytime I want!

Lots of love,
