Hey guys! Hope the summer has been treating you right. I know it has been HOT HOT HOT here! The summer holidays are just flying by! The kids are loving their summer break…and I am realizing that this summer has been a very different one than any I have ever spent. (that’s for another post entirely)
I have been a busy girl this past week or so…and I might have a few things to share with you in the very near future that might just have a little something to do with my new gardens out here on the acreage…but until then, you will just have to settle for another furniture make-over reveal. To see the last few projects that I have done you can click here…and here…and to see the BEST one yet…click here
This is going to be a fairly short but sweet little post…as what all can a girl say about a little desk this size?
When this desk came to me (yup…another junkin’ find) it was in a sad state. It had been used and ABUSED in a big way.
All I could think of when I started to look at it closely, was that if this was in my room as a little girl, my Mother would have strung me up by my toes and smacked me with a wooden spoon if I did something like this to my furniture! In fact…I still have the furniture that I had when I was a little girl…It is still in good shape…and I don’t think it EVER looked near as rough as this. It is a good thing that I rescued this…because it was going to the dump if I didn't! It is going to look a LOT better once I am done with it.
I had taken my oldest girl along with me when I went to town to grab some supplies for giving this little desk a make-over. I ended up coming home with a totally different look planned for the desk than was originally on the agenda. My teenage daughter talked me into a little bit of color….Okay…lets be honest here...a lot of color.
It really didn’t take me too long to do this peice. The top was a simple sanding and stain…then the sanding and priming and paint on the bottom. A bit of paint on the drawer pulls and …Badda Bing…Badda Boom…it was done! I did a protective coat and the piece was ready to find a sweet spot to live. My little “Busy” would really like to have it in her room…but she would like to have pretty much anything I have made in her room. She is my biggest fan.
I am quite happy with the finished result. I was excited to share the new look I gave this piece, so the drawers are not closed tight as it needed to cure just a little bit more. (you get the idea) This piece is now cute, fun and right on point with the trend right now.
I can honestly say, I have never painted anything Tiffany Blue…and I have never put baby pink handles on a piece…so it’s been a fun adventure! I can’t wait to see where it ends up!
It really is quite a change!
Well guys…that’s it for me for today.
Until next time… Happy Junkin’ !!! ( and re-finishing!)
