Deep Green Boho Desk Makeover

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Hi Everyone!

Today's post is going to be all about my desk makeover.  When I first started my journey furniture painting, my desk was the first piece I ever did using Country Chic Paint in the color Dune Grass!

You can still check out that makeover and blog post here!

I loved this makeover, and it is actually one of my most popular posts, BUT, my style and my home decor style has changed since then, so I knew it was time for a makeover!

And what better time than right now!


So here was the very before of my desk, fresh from Facebook a year ago:

And here it is after my first makeover:

I will say, I used this desk almost everyday for the past year and the Country Chic Paint & Natural Wax I used on it held up INCREDIBLY!  It looked the same as the day I first painted it, so if that doesn't tell you how amazing their paint and products are, idk what will!

Although I will not be using their paint for this whole project, I still have a code for you to use if you are inspired by my first makeover (and a hundred others) using their paint :)


Behr Paint

So, for this piece I started off by cleaning it and removing all of the old hardware, as well as my old drawer liner. That was not an easy job! I also had to use mineral spirits to remove the wax I had applied in my first makeover!

I used my Behr paint in the color Dark Everglade and mixed it up with my BBfrosch Paint transformer powder and got right to painting.  I brushed this piece and did 4 coats!

For the top I painted it a beige color I mixed from some Country Chic paint I had left over and let it dry.  Once dry, I used a chip brush and some CCP in the color Canape with a touch a black paint to dry brush the top and mimic wood grain!

After the dry brushing was done and I reach my desire look,  use Dixie Belle's Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road and a damp painting sponge to wipe it on.  This blends everything together and really gives it that wood look!

I sealed the whole piece with my polyurethane topcoat, doing 3 coats!

I lined my drawers with this fun orange printed paper from Society 6 and added my pretty round brass knobs from D.Lawless Hardware, and my desk was finished!

Let me know what you think of the full makeover! I am loving how it came out, and it was just the change I needed in my office!
