Wow, did I luck out this weekend! One old desk in need of a lot of TLC. I could have fell over when the guy said $5, but instead, I said SOLD!
What did I actually see ....
And a new sewing table. :)
My first big furniture make over. And I'm so excited.
I had taken the drawers out and began sanding (in my excitement) before taking a before shot. So here it is with the drawers removed.
Every drawer had a split piece of wood ... in the same place. Very strange, but all pieces were present so nothing a bit of wood glue won't fix. :)
I actually don't mind the colour so much, but maybe not so bright. So I was thinking white, but now I'm leaning towards a duck egg blue rubbed over with a black glaze. Hmmm...
I can't wait to go shopping for handles and maybe locks or knobs on the top drawers. And maybe some pretty paper to line the drawers!
Keep you posted! :)
