I am finished with the desk that I posted about a few days ago. I am honestly having the hardest time deciding if I should sell it or keep it. 🙁 I want it. In fact…it would go perfectly in my spare bedroom. It matches so well!! So, I think I’ll hold onto it for now. SHHHH… try not to spill the beans to my hubby. 🙂
Here is a reminder of the “before” picture. This desk was given to me by a friend. It is a great piece of furniture and is well made. It has been in a garage for a few months, waiting for some love, affection, and attention.
Here she is AFTER ! Really, refinishing furniture is super easy. All you need is a little paint, patience, and perseverance. The three P’s. 🙂
Here are the details of her transformation:
I took the drawers out and primed and painted them. I used KILZ spray primer (as usual) and used Krylon Ivory gloss for the paint.
The inside of the drawers had a picture that someone had drawn, so I decided to put some fabric on the drawers to cover up the sketches. I used spray adhesive to glue down the fabric.
I also sprayed the top of the desk with Chalkboard paint that I picked up at Home Depot. Yes…chalk board paint comes in the SPRAY can! 🙂 I then sprayed the GREAT pink hardware with my trusty oil rubbed bronze spray paint, and VIOLA, she looks brand, spankin’ new!
I decided to write a to do list on the top to give her a try. I LOVE doodling, and “to do” lists are a MUST in this household. This is when I fell in too deep to sell her.
Doesn’t she look GREAT!?!?
I can already picture all of my sewing stuff in her drawers. 🙂 What do you think? Should I keep her, or sell her?
