Little Red Desk

I forgot to take "before" pictures. Sorry :-)

I didn't use any stencils ~ this is all free hand which would explain the non-uniformity of some of the patterns ;-)

A shot from above. I painted the desk top with chalkboard paint. I had a heck of a time finding chalk. I finally ended up with sidewalk chalk.

that is amazing detail! I only wish I could paint. I've tried before, and simply felt defeated and gave up!
You did a fabulous job!

Wow Wow Wow. I finally had time to really look at the links to my first linky party and I have to say this is amazing. I also like to freehand paint furniture and i also like to do the unconventional pattern approach. How fun to find you here. I will be following and thanks again for linking up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful
