Stained Espresso Desk
But initially, let us have a little refresh of this desk.
I made a decision to clear away the end from the top and refinish it so I would not paint in excess of those people really inlays.
This was an outdated bottle of Citristrip when it actually applied to operate definitely effectively.
I really do not use it any more. They adjusted the method and it just does not do the position the way it utilised to.
(read through a lot more about my evaluation of that in the post, right here)
In any case, off arrived that end to expose that lovely wood underneath.
I assumed I preferred to stain it this color… (water-centered stain)
NOPE! I quickly wiped that back off.
Then I considered I’d whitewash it…
Nope! Ha! I did not like that possibly. Off came that as effectively.
I permit it dry right away and made the decision to go with oil-dependent stain rather.
I utilised a pre-stain 1st, then Antique Walnut, wiping again nicely, then Traditional Grey around that, also wiping again.
And WOW, it came out the ideal shade!
I painted the foundation white with a little bit of distressing.
