A while back a friend of mine gave me this desk.
I wish I would have taken pictures of the back.
It's been painted at least 4 different colors.
Brown, Cream, Aqua and then this Maroon color.
I had plans of repainting it and using it as it is, a cute little desk.
But I ended up not needed another desk in my house.
But, I did need an end table!
*light bulb moment*
I grabbed my mallet and knocked the legs and back off the desk portion of the desk
and then used the chainsaw to cut off the top portion.
Then, I sanded it smooth
I left the top layers of paint but I smoothed them out.
I wanted to be able to see the texture of the layers and some of the color coming through.
Then, I painted it white.
Sanded the edges and made a few "worn" spots.
Then, I used my glaze and some dark teal paint to glaze the desk.
I added some new knobs and gave her
(yes, I assume all of my furniture is female...
with exception of the toilet and any recliners.)
a new home in my newly finished basement.
