Chalk Paint French Country Desk

Painted French Country style desk
Painted and waxed with Annie Sloan Chalk paint
in Old White.


I used chalk paint on this little desk and loved the ease of process and the final look, so thought I would share the not-so-secret here. The real secret is that chalk paint is available locally for us Kingstonians.  The Melon Patch in Bath, ON is one of only two distributors in Canada.  If you purchase an item with delivery from Tribute and would like some paint to go with it, let me know and we will arrange to have it sent along.
