Here is a quick video tutorial:


I found this desk a few years ago and wanted to give it a makeover.  

1.  I started out by taking off the top.

2.  Then I applied stripper.

3.  I made sure to get it everywhere and then let it sit, according to the directions.

4.  I scraped off the old finish.

5.  I cleaned it off with acetone.

6.  The inside had ink stains and I didn't want them to show, so I primed the inside.

7.  I then used the Weathered Daydream #UnicornSpit, watered down, on the top of the desk.  I brushed it on and then wiped it off.

8.  Once the primer dried, I used the Zia Teal on the inside of the desk.

9.  I used the Ning White on the exterior of the desk, wiped it off and let it dry.

The yellow of the wood showed through more than I would have liked.

10.  I used a lot of the white and just a little bit of the Weathered Daydream and painted it on the desk and lightly wiped it off - making sure to blend.

11.  Once everything dried, I taped off the top of the desk, to make sure the legs and inside were protected.  Then, I mixed the Glaze Coat for the top.   (FYI:  I sprayed the legs and inside with a sealer).

12.  I poured the Glaze Coat onto the top of the desk and spread it around.

13.  I used my torch to pop the bubbles.

14.  I found a small vase that fit well into the inkwell and added a silk flower.

This is how it looks all done!  It has a fun weathered, beachy feel to it!

The inside has a fun pop of color!

I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
