Heirloom Traditions Black Bean

    This is my first of many posts using Heirloom Traditions Paint.  I am in love with it.  I now carry it in my booth “Inspired to Restore” at Chic & Shabby Collections downtown Franklin or you can order it directly here:  Heirloom Traditions Paint and have it shipped directly to your doorstep.
    I was in a hurry to get this party started that I almost forgot to take the before picture.
    Here she is.  A pretty french desk.  I remember these growing up. This style has been around for a long time.  I love the curved legs and the outline of the drawers.  I left the pulls as they were, I think they look just fine.
    I decided to use Black Bean on her.  I looked at images of this same desk painted and loved the look of it in black.  Black is just classic, it goes with everything!


    One of the reasons I love this paint is that it is thick right out of the can.  I find it covers very well.  This desk only took one pint. That’s another reason I started carrying this brand.  Some jobs don’t require a whole quart.  I love the option of buying a pint.

    After I painted with Black bean, to seal and protect the finish I used our Top Coat.  It’s just the right coverage to seal and protect.


    And here she is.  Ready to find her new home.
