Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {Vintage Desk-Coco}

Yes, I did it again. Another piece in coco and old white. Things have been a bit crazy around here so I haven't had a chance to get as many posts done as I would like. I finally got my new silhouette cameo and have been spending any free time trying to figure out how the heck it works. Just a tad intimidated. I think the best thing to do is to just jump right in and learn on the fly. I scored some free pallets this past weekend and I am so excited to see if I can make some signs out of them. I will post my inspirations sometimes this week. There are so many crazy talented gals out there and I have been reading a ton of tutorials and how to's that hopefully, I can pull something off that is good enough to sell in my booth.  We shall see...

This desk is your run of the mill, beaten down, good bones, great hardware piece. Again another craiglist steal. I forgot to take pics of the inside of the drawers but I lined them with some super sweet floral patterned paper that matches the coco and old white perfectly.
