Vintage Desk with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

Oh how I love this piece. I grabbed it at an estate sale that I went to on a whim. The veneer was coming off the top a bit, but nothing a little glue couldn't fix.

No "before" pic, but this is what she looks like dressed in a custom mix of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint (MMSMP) 3/4 parts Dried Lavender and 1/4 parts Trophy. I used Antiquing Wax as a top coat and Dark walnut with antiquing wax on the top.











I love this piece! This will be for sale at Carver Junk Company June 19-22 unless it sells before then!

Hi Allison, I'm visiting from the Live Laugh Linky Party. Your desk makeover is so pretty - I love the color and the stained top rather than painted. The details just pop now - so pretty!
