This clean-lined, two-toned desk was in rough condition when I spotted it at a moving sale.
A huge chunk of the top middle drawer was missing; nothing a little spackling paste and paint couldn't fix.
I thought the desk looked charming with two tones, so I patched it up and kept it two-hued with French Linen and Old White Chalk Paint.
I protected the paint finish with Annie Sloan clear wax and then buffed it for a smooth sheen.
I wanted to squeeze this grain sack bench into the post, since it looks cute with this desk. I found a piece of linen fabric at the shop and used that to upholster the seat. I used painter's tape and Graphite Chalk Paint to put three running stripes down the center of the fabric to create a faux grain sack.
