Ivy Hollow - postmaster's desk wall, part 3

by brae  

Continuing work on the back wall. Our rural post office has good cabinets and a postal teller in newish condition, but the desk and chair are hand me down pieces. They are still perfectly usable, after all. :]

The Chrysnbon Victorian chair kit was a gift from Barbara.

The desk is adapted from a table pattern in the book Finishing Touches by Jane Harrop. I beat it up with every tool on my work table. Look at that delightfully ratty finish! :D

Lovely unexpected finishes. Distressing the desk must have been a lot of fun!

How did you paint the chair? What colors/layers and finishing coat did you use? Thanks!

I always use spray paints on plastic kits, but I'm not sure what color I used for this particular chair. :no:
