I knew when I saw this Jacobean piece it was going to be the Emperor’s Silk painted sofa table desk. It can be used in many different ways. Found on Hickory Lane in Port Colborne I just loved the shape of it.
I first started by stripping and sanding the top. I then used General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel stain and Gel Topcoat for added protection and durability. The paint is my go-to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Silk Red.
I also painted the back of this piece so it could easily sit behind a sofa that is a bit low.
