Hello Everyone! Today, I thought I would share with you a recent desk make-over that I did. Back in the fall, I purchased this desk at a yard sale. It was structurally sound but was in need of some work, as you can see.
I painted it with Annie Sloan graphite chalk paint. And here is the after.
I left the top of the desk as it was but I lightly sanded it and and applied
three coats of Wipe-On Polyurethane, lightly sanding between each coat of Polyurethane.
I also changed out the hardware.
Whenever I’m in doubt about choosing a color for a piece of furniture, I tend to go with black. And so far, it has done me well. The desk and chair only lasted a day in my booth!
Whenever I see a desk for sale (at a reasonable price) in my travels I will buy them. Every desk I have had in my booth has sold rather quickly.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a safe and warm weekend. It’s still bitter cold here and snow is still on the ground from Monday’s snow storm. They are anticipating more snow for tomorrow….I say, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! I could use another snow day just to chill with Charlie and maybe just maybe beat him at Yahtzee this time…..he beat my butt bad on Monday….LOL!
