Check - project desk!

Checking my projects off the list!

PROJECT #2 - Desk:















I am very pleased with the way this desk turned out.  As you can see in the before, she wasn't bad but just needed a little pick me up!  I sanded, stained, and poly'ed the top.  (The early morning after pictures don't quite do it justice....it is be-u-ti-ful!)  And then I painted, primed, and painted the based and light gray.  I used the original hardware after I scrubbed it clean and gave it a light coat of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint!  I didn't get pictures but, I also lined the drawers with a beautiful paisley and metallic paper!  Love it!

  3. Your desk looks great! I love the clean simple lines to it. It's a nice contrast with the gray paint and the dark stained top.
