Emperor Silk time for my desk ....

I had so much good advice & feedback from my request re my desk that I just had to show you the progress ...

my-space is a desk in my bedroom, by the window with a view over the surrounding countryside & I keep all my letters & personal bits there but I have not been happy with the dark interior so decided to follow your advice ....

I bought my first tin of Annie Sloan chalk paint in a bold shade of Emperor's Silk!

I tucked a double layer of brown paper in to paint the edge against

I love the paint effect - I decided against a second coat of paint because I did not want a flat colour but the tones of the original surface to give it depth.

It now has a coat of clear wax too & I really love it because it is a vast improvement on the dark interior & it now looks so lovely when opened ♥

Thanks for the advice offered by the bloggers. What is your favourite painted colour?  I think I will be buying some more chalk paints for other projects ...
