It's currently snowing here in Arkansas and I'm in my warm house, watching my fav shows, so I figured now was as good a time as any to get started in my blogging adventures. I definitely have no idea how this whole thing works so I guess I'll get started with my first DIY project (I'll appoligize in advance! Bad lighting + Iphone = terrible photo quality).
So, here she is....
I had been looking for a good desk for a while, so when I saw this at an estate sale several months ago, I knew I had to have it! It definitely needed a lot of work. The veneer was cracked and peeling and it looked like someone painted it while blindfolded.
I love the details and curvy legs
Let me just tell you that this was a nightmare! Chipping away at this old veneer made my hands sore for days!!! After several days of sanding and applying wood putty, I had a "blank canvas" to work with.
I applied a new veneer top (which I bought off ebay) and got to priming/painting/staining and ended up with this....
I would love to have feedback on this project so I can hopefully improve in the future! And I promise to have better quality photos next time :)
