Cubbie Desk with Chalk Paint

This was an awesome find at a garage sale.

 It is also another trip into Chalk Paint Land.  I am really pleased with the way it sands off.  It looks so nice.  

Its pretty straight forward paint job.  I painted it Anne Slones Antique White Paint, sanded it off with a sponge block sander very gently.  I say gently because it comes off really easy compared to the latex that I have been used to using, so be careful.  I also changed out the handles to knobs that I got on sale at Restoration Hardware, which I think made the desk look much more dainty.

I put this in the store and it was a HOT item and sold in two days.  We of course are looking for more like it but they are hard to find.  
Aren't I fancy, I figured out how to add my blog name onto the photo!  
Hope you all have a great week!
