Recently, I know I shared a little sneak peek of this desk I am about to share with you. I started it a LONG time ago and then ran out of poly and tried to mix in another type of poly which was a HUGE mistake. So it sat in my garage waiting….
Have you ever messed up on a project and then you just don’t want to look at it or deal with it? Well this turned into one of those. I got it for free, so I thought about just donating it. But then my neighbor saw it and exclaimed, “Oooooh what are you doing with that piece?!?!” I explained to her what I had already done to the piece, and that I needed to fix it. Getting those words out of my mouth gave me the motivation to finally fix it properly!
I apologize because I must have deleted my before picture since this was so long ago. We are talking late summer, folks. I am sort of embarrassed by how long it sat there, but hey, at least it is done now! But let me tell you, this piece was shellacked like crazy- super shiny faux mahogany look with shiny brass knobs…. it was not my thang.
The paint color is my go-to black, Lamp Black by General Finishes, and the finish is Minwax wipe-on poly in satin. That is what I had run out of the first time, but I ordered more from Rockler so I could fix it!
Ok, anyhow, on to the FINAL reveal. I feel like there has been all this build up and it’s really not all that exciting. Well, I present to you my black desk….
This would be great as a nightstand/workspace or even as an entry piece. It’s such a great small size!
Tomorrow I will be back with pictures from this month’s barn sale! Sarah and I spent some time yesterday setting up and making it Springy! Now we just need the weather to be Springy, too.
