Lovely little Desk

This lovely little desk found a new home this morning. I finished it last week when I had time off. It turned out really good. I like that it turned out very neutral with the Charcoal Grey finish. It will look good in an office and not be too girly.

  2. That is an amazing transformation. It looks so masculine and strong now, compared to how feminine it was before. My bedroom set is very simiar to the original piece and I have been dying to make it over.

  4. I am so impressed by your work. I just bought a desk like this at a garage sale. I am wondering if you are willing to give step by step help on what you did to this desk. It is so beautiful! My email is grimmsby5@gmail.com if you would be willing. If not no worries. THanks

  6. Oh I wish I had a name for this color! It was one I mixed on accident. I started out with some black paint I had lying around then I was trying to mix a tinted primer, but ended up liking the color. So I have no name. sorry! I think that the black paint had a grey base to it.

  8. I'd love to know more details to how you refurbished this desk. It's look awesome! Did you sand it down completely? What did you put on after that? Can you go ahead and put on your chosen paint then, or do you need some primer or whatever? I'm new at this, and I just love how your project turn out. If you wanna email me that would be great too.

    Thanks,
