***yes you have seen this glamorous desk before in my gallery..but this is the second version….my client asked for a repeat of the first…so this really is a NEW project***

Before:

I did give this glamorous desk a thin coat of Shellac prior to painting black with Caviar by DBP.  This will guarantee the blockage of tannins bleeding through the white paint that I will be using.

Spray Wax by Vintiques in Noir (The Vintiques line of products have been discontinued.  I recommend  Best Dang Wax in Black by Dixie Belle as a replacement product)

This seals your project while enhancing it at the same time!

Apply your paper of choice using 1-Gel by Heirloom Traditions Paint.  This product both adheres your paper to the surface but also is used to seal and protect it.  And can I just tell you how much I adore this 1970’s flocked wall paper???

SIDE NOTE….in the photo below I tried to use a big word….and it is NOT the right word!  Evidently this word (burnish)  has something to do with making things smooth and shiny.  LOL!  oops!  I just meant “seal” your tape edges with the black before filling in the stripes with white.  Humor me and pretend I am smart!

Fill in the taped off areas with Drop Cloth by DBP.  This took two coats.

While still wet….remove the tape for clean and near perfect lines!
