Old Writing Desk


Found this desk on Craig's List for $40.

The laminate was loose and peeling, so I removed it and covered the top w paintable wallpaper. I wallpapered the drawer, as well.

Painted it, once the outdoor temperature reached at least 50 degrees!

Purchased the knobs at Hobby Lobby (to match my Victrola Cabinent) and had a piece of glass cut for the top.

    Hi, what color did you paint it?

    I am fairly new to Hometalk , I looked back at previous comments trying to find directions but my old computer just won't go all the way to start. This is elegant and doesn't sound too expensive. I want to try it, so if you have posted instructions can you advise or is there a site I can follow you. I don't have Facebook, twitter, or any of the other " social media" sites. Again, my computer just can't handle I guess. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Karen in California
