Statement Striped Chalk Paint Desk

There is no doubt that this desk makes a bold statement in any room. If your decor is eclectic or worldly, it may fit in your style without hesitation. Kayla from Painted by Kayla Payne shares how her $25 desk that was overly bland and boring transformed into a bold statement desk.

The best part about this is that is sold the same day she listed it on her local craigslist. How did she achieve those fantastic stripes? She painted the whole desk in graphite colored chalk paint. Then, once it was dry, she laid down a 3″ wide piece of tape and butted tape against that one across the top and front of the desk.

She then removed every other one and painted it in Old White. To add a little charm she used sanding sponges and buffed the entire piece with clear wax to seal. The look is impressive and bold.
