Custom Order: Painted Furniture, Desk

 

 

 

 

College is always a good excuse for a new desk, or furniture for that matter! Everyone wants the perfect dorm room or apartment! With school approaching, I was contacted by a young lady who is beginning her freshman year at Texas Christian University, home of the Horned Frogs. They love their PURPLE, and so it is only fitting that this desk was painted in CeCeCaldwell‘s New Orleans Purple!

I hope everyone has a wonderful start to their school year, whether you are attending or your children are starting back up! Make it a great year!

While the wax is still tacky, lightly apply Aging Dust with a clean, soft bristle brush. Applying the Aging Dust while the wax is still tacky, will help highlight details, cracks & crevices.
