So, we are getting a new sectional, 42" flat screen LCD, and a new TV stand. So, I decided since it's "out with the old and in with the new" that I wanted to refinish some old furniture. I moved some stuff around, and now I'm creating a reading nook next to the fireplace. SO, I'm painting an old desk and chair black and distressing it. Here is the 1st of a 3-part series to show the progress of the set.
The desk is a hot mess. Missing drawer, stickers, scrapes, scratches, and ugly hardware. The chair just needs some TLC, really. So, I'm painting everything black and distressing it with sandpaper and a hammer. The missing drawer is being turned into a mini book shelf.
Oh, and the inside of the desk is a Organizing Queen's dream!! Look at the awesome compartments!! I plan on storing my laptop in here. Yay!
I decided that instead of buying new hardware I would take some sandpaper to it and then put them back on upside down. See above. I dig it. What do you think??
There will be more to come. The next post will be when everything is painted, and ready for distressing.
