About This Post
Thirty Eighth Street took an outdated farmhouse table and upcycled it into a gorgeous wall desk! Carrie of Thirty Eighth Street says "I started by sanding the top of the table down to the original wood. Wiped down the table top, then brushed one coat of General Finishes Water Based Stain in Walnut. This was my first time using a water based stain and I have to say that it went on like a dream! The coverage was superb and clean up was a cinch! The green base was painted in General Finishes new line of Chalk Style Paint in Empire Gray. I've tried several chalk style paints over the years and this one has become a new favorite! Then, sealed BOTH the stained top and the gray chalk style paint with 2 coats of GF Flat Out Flat. This top coat is incredibly durable and gives off little to no sheen. If you like the look of wax, you'll be smitten with Flat Out Flat. Plus your arms will thank you because you can kiss that buffing step good-bye! Each of these products are simple and easy to work with and because all of these products are water based, with just a little soap and water, I was done with clean up in minutes!"
