paint green, paint green, sand, glaze, dirty up, sand down, glaze up. repeat.




it's getting there! hope to be done tonight. i'm painting a pretty little pattern on the drawer faces, and i bought lovely new hardware for it today. i can't wait til my vision is complete!

(p.s. olympic paint is AWFUL. it's like trying to paint with tempera paint. 4 coats!)


  1. are you selling or keeping?
    I'm kind of obsessed, but def can't buy. Just looking. I hate being poor.

  2. ha! i don't know...but if you want to commission something similar, you know i'm always willing to work within a budget, sista!

  3. Hi Kristen,

    So sorry to hear that you were unhappy with using Olympic Paint. Was there anything specific you were unhappy with? We'd like to hear more about your experience so we can understand how to make it better next time!

    Please feel free to email me at and I'd be more than happy to pass along your questions and concerns.

    Thanks and have a great day!

  4. Did you strip the original finish before you painted it?

  5. lela- no, i just sanded it really well. once i do all those treatments on it, i use a polyurethane sealer to prevent from damage. the desk was pretty old, so the finish wasn't so slick anymore, anyway.

  6. Super website with a great sharing and amazing stories is ur web.. please keep doing what u do now.. thanks to you.
