Look what I dragged home from the Goodwill with me the other day!! My husband is so happy. He loves it when the garage is crammed with furniture projects.:) I initially bought this desk for our daughter who is moving into an apartment this summer and I thought this might work for her. We will see if she likes it. I have a feeling it might be too small for her but then again maybe not. I have not seen the size of her new bedroom yet in the apartment and I think that is what will decide if she is going to take it or not. Anyway, I am going to proceed with painting it and it will either end up with her or stay here with me. I’ll probably use it as a sewing table. Not sure exactly where we’ll put it but I’ll worry about that later. :)
And did I mention that I only paid $20.00 for it???? BARGAIN!
First step was to wipe it down with a damp wash cloth after removing the hardware. I am going to replace all the drawer pulls with something new. See the scribble marks from the former owners? The primer will help cover that up. The top of this desk is a laminate. I am hoping that the primer will allow me to paint that surface and not have the paint chip off. My back up plan is to decoupage the top if the primer does not prevent any chipping.
One coat of primer gave me the coverage I needed. (One can gave me one full coat.)
It’s a work in progess. But I am on my way. Just waiting for the primer to dry which gives me some time to think about what color to paint it.
