Old Sewing Machine Table Off Craigslist Into Rustic Fun Desk!

4 Hours
I bought a very ugly old sewing machine table off craigslist and turned it into a rustic boys desk. It was spray painted horribly with drips and uneven all over. It need a serious makeover.

I removed all the hardware and removed the top. I sanded in spots as needed. It was so hard to sand through the spray paint. It was so bad! Please do not spray paint furniture unless you really take your time. 3 light coats of spray paint is usually what works without drips. Personally, I like chalk paint!
The next step was cutting fence posts for the top. I wanted them rustic, i little uneven and no where near perfect. I was going for a colorful fun look, so here are the after photos.
