Inspiration

Work Hard, Be Kind School Desk

by Beau Ford

Painter in Residence Beau Ford gave this sad and forgotten school desk a complete makeover using Chalk Paint®.

After replacing the top and giving the whole desk a quick clean, Beau set to work on the paintwork. First, she painted the base of the desk in Chalk Paint® in English Yellow, then applying Paris Grey as an accent on the feet.

She painted the top of the table in a chevron pattern, using a ruler as a rough guide. She worked with a range of colours to make a bright statement: Barcelona Orange, Scandinavian Pink, English Yellow, Provence, Greek Blue and Napoleonic Blue.

When you lift the lid of the desk you find a charming surprise – the words ‘Work Hard, Be Kind’ written in lovely, freehand type.

Beau used Clear and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax to finish the piece and give the overall piece an aged look.
