What can I get done in a weekend without cable and internet? A lot! This desk is proof of it! The past few months I had been searching garage sales for a cheapo desk that I could redo for my office. I didn’t have any luck at garage sales, but my friend and I went to some antique stores nearby one day and I found a great desk! I knew just what I wanted to do with it.
I had seen and loved this dresser redo over at Scissors and Spatulas http://www.scissorsandspatulas.com/2011/06/grannys-old-dresser.html. I thought this style would be great with the new desk. They even have the same hardware!
I got out the new Mouse and went to work sanding it. I primed it, and gave it 3 coats of Behr Country Dairy (the same as I used on the nightstand redo). Unlike the dresser example, I didn’t do anything with the top of my desk. It was in pretty good condition. I distressed it a bit by sanding the edges. I am debating whether or not to add a little dark stain to some of the detailing in the desk. What to you think? I am just enjoying it for now!
**please ignore the mess of cords in the corner! I will hide them:)
Stay tuned to see what I will be doing with some ceiling tin I got on the same shopping trip…
