Destroyed to Devine Desk

We bought this damaged little desk of Kijiji. Brought it home, piled on the wood filler, and sanded the damaged corner, until it looked somewhat like a corner again. Then we sanded the entire desk and had it painted white. We changed the knobs to crystal knobs and there it was. My perfect desk. For under $200.00 :)
