I found some great treasures at the local thrift store on Veteran’s Day (showed some other treasures on my IG – follow @ashleydsp).
I love supporting our local St. Vincent dePaul, and I also love a 50% off sale.
I scored this cute little wood desk right when the doors opened.
In perfectly good shape – just needed some elbow grease a new paint job.
I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use the Miss Mustard Seed Milkpaint in Typewriter that I picked up a couple months ago, and thought this desk screamed typewriter. (Yeah, my furniture talks…they’re really advanced).
I’ve been on a black kick as it is, which I’ll show you more of later, but love the way this desk turned out.
The milk paint totally did it’s thing and I LOVE the way that the wood grain shows through.
Wax hadn’t been buffed yet in this picture (I’m impatient), but you can see a good view of the color.
People often ask where you can buy MMS Milk Paint locally, and the inside scoop I heard, was that Faded Elegance in Snohomish will soon be the next vendor! Don’t hold me to that answer though – that’s just word on the street.
