I picked this desk up for FREE about a year ago. It was old color when I got it. It was dirty, and then it sat in my garage for almost a year.
So it was pretty gross when I started working on it last week. First I cleaned it a ton, then I took the back off, then I sanded it, then I painter all but the top yellow, then I realized that looked really bad with the stained top. Then I spray painted it navy, stained the top a walnut color, and sanded it a ton.
Once I moved it out of the garage I taped off the stripes (SUPER pain in the Booty), and then I used a finishing wax to seal it all.
I love it. I love the bright color and the mix of the heavy distressing with the clean lines of the knobs.
And I love that it has a secret identity. Shhh... Don't tell.
I spent way too much time looking through old comics and cutting out the bits I liked and Mod Podged them to the bottom of the drawers.
I am REALLY hoping to have the room all done next week.
I just want to squeal with excitement about how awesome the finished room looks in my head.
