The finish was smooth and flawless! I didn’t want to distress this piece so I left it as is and it’s beautiful. It dries super fast so I was able to apply the General Finishes Top Coat in flat within hours. And the best part is we never had to move the desk! Brilliant!
(Disclaimer: I was given products by General Finishes to try but the opinions are all my own!)
When we moved into our house a while back we inherited this desk. The only reason we did was because it is a BEAST and they didn’t want to worry about moving it. The desk is great but definitely needed a makeover.
So when General Finishes sent me some of their products I knew this was the perfect time to paint the desk. I LOVED how it turned out! It’s smooth and shiny and the LAMP BLACK color is gorgeous.
This was the first time I have used MILK PAINT. I either use chalk paint or go the traditional route of sanding, priming, and then painting. I have to tell you that I LOVE MILK PAINT! It was so easy to work with. I sanded before I applied the first coat just to even the surface out. I then used a extra fine sanding block for the in-between coats.
