French Provincial Furniture

French Provincial Makeover
Have you ever seen something average and knew it could be better. Well, when I saw this desk, I saw more then just a plain , white average desk.
Who wants to be average anyways?
We started by cleaning and prepping. Starting with a clean surface insures a long lasting durable finish. We sprayed the entire desk black as well as the inside and outside of the drawers. This gives it a more professional look. After which we top coated it with a high-sheen water based poly-acrylic. Then we used a bronze metallic paint and cut it with a cream glaze medium which was brushed on and then wiped off with fine cheese cloth.
And Wallah!!!!
Ladies.... You know when you go to the beauty counter and ask for the
"Smokey eye" look??? We've all tried it at some time and come home looking like raccoons.
Well, Here is my rendition of the " smokey look" It's sultry, mysterious, it's sexy!
