DIY Yellow Magnolia Garden Desk

Hi everyone! It’s Denise from Salvaged Inspirations! For today’s makeover, I’m transforming this vintage desk using a little bit of sunshine, the faux wood technique, and a GORGEOUS Dixie Belle Paint Transfer from their NEW Belles And Whistles line! In today’s tutorial, you will see what a little paint and, in this case,  a furniture transfer can do!

Materials List:

Paint Brushes
Sanding Sponge | Shop Towels
White Lightning
Slick Stick
Dixie Mud in White
Water Misting Spray Bottle
Burlap Chalk Mineral Paint
Chocolate Chalk Mineral Paint
Rebel Yellow Chalk Mineral Paint
Magnolia Garden Transfer
Morocco Stencil
Best Dang Wax in Brown
Satin Clear Coat 

How To:

Step 1:

To prep this desk I cleaned the entire piece with White Lightning.  Once the piece dried, I rolled on two coats of Slick Stick. Slick Stick is awesome when you need 100% certainty your paint will adhere without sanding.  Slick Stick is a super-tough gripping primer that works on shiny factory finishes, plastic, metal, ceramic, and mirror! Just keep in mind it’s not made to cover bleed through. After it was primed, I filled the hardware holes using Dixie Mud in White.

Step 2:

The next day, I painted two coats of Rebel Yellow. This paint is a little bit of sunshine in a jar! I love painting with a color that makes me smile.

Step 3:

I decided to give the legs and hardware knobs a natural wood finish. Therefore, I painted a base coat of Burlap and then I added a Chocolate color wash along with a little dry brushing.

Step 4:

Next, I used two of the Magnolia Garden Transfer designs because I wanted to place this full sheet on the front of all the drawers.
