Desk Makeover using DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin Paint
I am excited to share a new product with you today! I LOVE paint and painting…I’ve been known to paint and repaint projects and rooms as often as it has rained in the South this summer. And you southern folks know how WET it has been lately. So when DecoArt asked me to share with you their new multi-surface paints and beautiful stencils with you, I jumped at the chance.
My craft room is currently undergoing a mass renovation to become baby girl’s nursery. Therefore, our guest bedroom is becoming our office/craft room/guest bedroom & is in need of a little revamping to make the space work. I wanted to keep my large desk (that is actually a table) because it really allows me to spread out and create, but before I could move the table into it’s new home it needed a new look. And thanks to DecoArt….it’s ready for the runway!
Here is the before of the table….you can see it’s a pretty basic wooden 4 post piece (and if you want to follow along on Instagram check me out!) It was left in the house by the previous owner and for a while we just kept it in the attic, then I decided it was the perfect work space for me!
I started by coating the top of the desk in chalk paint. I hate the sanding process, so chalk paint covers everything right up with only one or two coats! Then it was time to stencil. The multi-surface worked wonders and only required ONE coat.
I used a roller, deep turquoise & dolphin paint, and the honeycomb stencil to create the perfect look. First I used a checker pattern using the entire stencil. Then I taped off the middle section to fill in the blank squres.
Once everything was dry I also coated the top with polyuathane (don’t worry, this pregnant lady, used a mask, opened the windows, and turned on the fan).
Since operation nursery was this weekend, the desk has now been moved to it’s new home & holds the spotlight in this room. I can’t wait to show you thewhole room & how we are making the best use of the space.
I hope you are now wanting run out and pick up some multi-surface paint of your own. Americana Multi-Surface Satins are available for purchase at Michaels, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, and other fine craft retailers. And in honor of their new products DecoArt is currenrly offering a rebate!!! Yes, you heard that right!
