This desk was at a consignment sale I recently attended. I snagged it for $15! Although a little bruised up, it was a hefty sturdy piece that has great feet. I thought it would make a great piece to use for our laptop. I get tired of that thing being on the dining table. I had my husband drill a hole underneath the little shelves so I could run the charging cable up through it for the computer. This desk makes a fabulous piece of furniture, as well as an awesome charging station for our gadgets!
Once again, our "Lady Wha-Wha," enjoying one of my projects. I'm beginning to think she knows what the camera is for. Is she really cheezing!?!
I left the top original, and just glazed the top with a varnish to protect from any further discoloration. I switched out the hardware for pretty little vintage style glass knobs. I just think they finished her off so nicely. It's like finding the perfect pair of earrings.
I used a glazing medium with brown acrylic paint. I brushed it on in small sections, then wiped it up, rubbing it into the nooks and crannies of the piece. I'm really pleased with how this little gem turned out. She has quite a bit of character.
