You can read why painting furniture white is “stickin’ it to the man” here
Last week when I shared my office makeover progress I promised a separate post about the desk. And I always make good on a promise =)
Any of you remember this desk?
I found it on Craigslist last April. I had planned to paint the body white and stain the top dark walnut. I was also planning to keep the existing hardware…
9 1/2 months later…
I decided I was sick of not having a desk and decided to get it done! (Possibly because I moved it to the middle of the garage and couldn’t park in there until it was finished – talk about motivation!) I sanded, patched, primed, painted (Creamy by Sherwin Williams), and polycrylic’ed the entire desk. I may have squealed with delight when it was all done– LOVE me some white furniture!
I replaced the existing hardware with glass pulls from Hobby Lobby and acrylic knobs from Pottery Barn Teen (I wanted the matching-ish glass knobs from Hobby Lobby, but they are out of stock in nearby stores and online).
15 newly drilled holes later:
And so you don’t have to scroll up again:
