I am so excited to reveal the updated desk that I showed you a few weeks ago. I can't tell you how much I learned in the process of this makeover.
She had a few scratches, but worst of all a formica top. At $18.00 on the last day of an estate sale, I couldn't resist the challenge. She is very solid and has tons of storage.
And here she is in all of her glory! I used Kilz Cashmere White on the desk and Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze on the original hardware. I actually tried some new hardware and it just didn't look right. She is lookin' pretty sassy now! I did some mild distressing.
I am in love with it. It gives the most wonderful finish. It feels silky and smooth.
It takes a little elbow grease, but I think it is much simpler than poly.
