Me and the hubs found this desk at a thrift store recently and as soon as we saw it we knew it would be perfect in our office. I frequent the thrift store A LOT and this was by far the cleanest, most organized store I have ever been to. The staff came up to help us as soon as we walked in and kept checking back with us. They were fabulous. We picked this up for $40.00. Solid wood and in perfect condition except that it was ugly, but I could fix that so I wasn't worried.
Here she is before...
Disregard the leaves on my basement floor....
Here is a close up of the handles and the newspaper under is the liner of the drawers. Cute, right?
I soaked these handles before I sprayed them with Rustoleum Lagoon Spray Paint
And here is the after...
I painted this desk with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Paris Gray. I sprayed the hardward with Rustoleum Spray Paint in Lagoon. I usually always wax my chalk paint pieces, but I decided to try and polyurethane this piece and I actually love how it sealed it.
Not bad for $40.00 since I already had all of the paint on hand for other projects!
