Today has been one of those two step forward and two steps back kinda of days. I actually feel like it has been that kind of week. But hey Enjoy Life, right?
I've been working on this desk for months. My husband and I swapped desks and I knew I wanted to paint this one. I had intentions of distressing it and putting on some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I may be the only one in blog land that doesn't LOVE this paint. I mean I like it...I can envision it on some great pieces of furniture, but I just didn't like it on this desk. I tried to distress the heck out of it thinking I may like it more. Instead it just looked beat up.
So anyway, after I picked up my rattan set and knew I was going for a fun, bold color type of room, I decided to scratch the Annie Sloan Paint and go all out color and gloss. Hubs encouraged me to go for it.
