Fleur de Lis Desk - Before & After


I was surprised with how this desk came out, I am really happy with it. Thank you Sarah for your help! This is available in the shop or through email.

  1. So pretty! I have a desk I've been meaning to do this to. How do you get the edges all worn-looking?

  2. Thank you! For this desk I actually painted all the edges black first, because that's the color I wanted to show through. Then after I painted the top coats, I used a fine grade sanding sponge to gently rub the white off to expose the black. I did it a bit harder in some areas to let the wood show here and there too, there's nothing like some good layering to add character! If you have more questions, I'm happy to help: Email me: 9redinfo(at)

    Thanks again!
