I spent some time yesterday cleaning the vintage desk that I shared in Monday’s post. It was pretty filthy from sitting in a garage or attic for years and needed a good scrub. Oh, the joys of rescuing relics lol! I used a sponge and water with a bit of dish soap to get the dirt off and then a paper towel to finish. The sponge and towels were black when I was done. The desk is now totally clean and all the mold and dirt/grime is off. Lucky took a liking to the desk and spent the afternoon hanging out underneath it while I worked 🙂
The base coat of Aubusson was applied. I’m going to fiddle around with it today and see what happens!
Aubusson is one of my favorite Annie Sloan colors. Here are a few previous pieces I have used it on:
I told you I love this color!
