I removed the drawers and hardware, then got my sand on! The desk was in pretty bad shape. Lots of dents, scratches and the occasional hole. She had been used and abused. I used wood filler where the sander couldn't do the job, allowed it to dry, then gave my gem an all over sand with a fine grit block to get it smooth. To beat the heat, I did all of this between commercial breaks so I was only outside for about five minutes at a time. Eight (okay, maybe not eight but it was quite a few!) episodes of Criminal Minds later, here she is!
again and I can't wait to see how it turns out! I think this desk just may be the pop this room needed!
Whatcha think? Am I crazy? Do you like taking risks and experimenting with color? Or do you play it safe with the big stuff and accent with color? Oh my goodness, I'm shakin' in my Toms (it's too hot for boots) to see the transformation completed!
