This is Nithiya from Design Team! Today I will show you how I altered an old short desk which is more than 25 years old. For this I used the newly launched Decoupage Filament papers.
These decoupage filament papers comes in 21 unique designs with 60gsm thickness and are wrinkle or bubble free when used. It comes as a single ply and can be used directly on the desired surface and gives a smooth finish. I used the Decoupage filament paper – Peacock Garden and gave a new look to my old desk.
Step 1: I cleaned the desk and sanded the edges with a sand paper.
Step 2: I used 2 in one modelling paste and filled all the gaps and leveled the uneven surfaces.
Step 4: I painted the top surface with Little Birdie chalk paint – Pineapple Lolly
Step 8: I used two step crackle medium for a crackle effect on the legs of the desk.
Step 9: To make the cracks visible I rubbed Rich Gold metallic wax on the crackled surface with fingers and wiped it off with a cloth immediately before it dried.
Step 10: I applied three coats of Little Birdie Matte – Decor Varnish on the top surface and one coat of Gloss Decor Varnish on the legs and inner surface. We can go one step further and seal the top surface with epoxy clear resin to make it water/write proof.
