Ones those stripes dried, I did three wide stripes going perpendicular to the first stripes. I watered down some ASCP Old White and lightly painted the stripes. I did a custom mixture of Graphite and Louis Blue (I think!) close to the wide white stripes and then went back the other way with a watered down version of that color. When everything was dry, I sanded the whole top to give it a little more distressed look.
Here is the finished plaid. I LOVE how it turned out!!
I’m totally loving how this piece turned out! I haven’t even shown my friend yet, so we’ll see how she responds when she sees this post! I really hope she likes it! I like it so much that I wanted to keep it for myself, but I really have no place to put it. So…it’s for sale along with several other items I’ve recently completed. The desk is posted in my “shop” section here on the blog and in my new Etsy shop. Be sure to check it out and send me an email if you’re interested.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! So glad you’re here!
