This boring pine desk tidy – bought in a charity shop for only £1.50 – is transformed into a perfect display unit for flyers and business cards once it has been given the Chalky Chic treatment.
An outdated pine desk tidy before the transformation
Chalk paint in complimentary colours is applied to all surfaces
Copper paint is used to pick out detail
Clear and dark wax is applied for protection and to give the piece a patina
Finally a bespoke decal is added to the front panel to finish the piece off
