Project Wednesday: Desk

October 7, 2010

I am currently typing this with a burned hand. I was pouring boiling hot gravy in a glass gravy jar…What? You’re not supposed to do that? Well, I found out the hard way when the jar cracked and the gravy poured all over my hand.


Well, that will teach me to let the gravy cool down a bit before putting it in a glass jar. Ahem.

On to better things: Here’s number three in my unfinished projects. I am pretty happy with the progress made on this one.

Just two pictures to share:

Here’s my $10 garage sale desk before

And here it is during

I was going to paint it just white, but I decided I wanted to add some color after all. Besides, I love aqua and Ben’s not a big fan. So, since we’ll use colors that we both like in the rest of the house, I figured I needed to include some aqua in my own room!

So all I need to do is do some sanding to get the finish nice and even and put on some coats of Verathane for a protective finish. I am going to put back the old brass hardware since I think it goes well with the Marie Antoinette theme of the room. I might invest in some nicer hardware down the road but for now I think this will do just fine.

I promise to show better photos when this baby is all done!

    Jadyn, it looks so wonderful. Way to go making progress, you are doing better than me on those back burner projects. I still haven’t finished the headboard or dresser…this encourages me.
