Desk Before and After


I found this solid wood desk at a thrift store for $17.50. I wanted to transform it into something beautiful and useable. I removed the drawers (and used them for another purpose) and painted the desk for a brand new look. Check out the blog post for more details!

    I like it! I am redoing a desk also. I painted the top with chalk board paint and am staining the bottom with red cherry stain.
