Nautical Pine Desk Makeover

Hey lovely ladies! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, or Happy Which-Ever-Holiday-You-Celebrate. I spent Christmas with my cousins in Florida this year. Now we are at Coco Beach, Fla this week for my birthday, which is the day after Christmas. That usually makes it hard to get away each year, but this time we took off to the coast for a mini-vacay. Today's makeover comes from a professional furniture rescuer, Refind Design by Coco Claire.



1.] SAND: Begin by stripping the desktop back down to raw wood.  Once the wood has been stripped or sanded back down to raw, you can stain it using Weatherwood Stain's Reclamation stain. That will this pretty tan color you see below. This is pretty similar to Restoration Hardware's "Natural" color.

Tip: If you're looking for more of a gray color, like the next photo, use Weatherwood Stain's "Pining".


2.] Seal Top: Use Weatherwood Stain's White Maintenance Oil to add a beautiful white washed patina. You can see the a piece of wood in the video below, where I added the White Oil patina. This look is extremely popular right now and very beautiful. Simply wipe or brush the Oil on, wait 5-7 minutes, and then wipe it back off.

Isn't the color gorgeous? That White Oil is an excellent product to achieve that pretty white washed look, while keeping all the wood grain.

3.] Paint: You can use any paint to paint the base of your furniture. However this piece was previously finished wood so a chalk based furniture paint was the best solution for time and durability. For this one, Pearl Coatings 1 -Step Furniture Paint in "Nack" was an excellent fit. It's a beautiful black with a little gray to it. 

Piece of pie, piece of cake! It was so darn easy to turn your old furniture into a brand new, beautiful piece. If you'd like to see more from Refind Design by Coco Claire, check her out on Facebook
