Salvaged wood desk transformed with chalk paint, bubble wrap and faux leather

10 Materials
I found this wood desk on the curb, wanted to try to keep the original wood finish but it was just too far gone, so I spruced it up with some chalk paint, a faux leather top, and added bubble wrap and plaster texture to the drawer fronts.

    I love it to, but I want to know more about the top and more explanation on the draws would be nice.
