Our First Makeover

My husband and I are huge fans of HGTV and watch in awe as rooms are tranformed, we are even more mesmerized when old furniture is tranformed into something completely new with just a splash of paint. We always wish we could do it but the fact of the matter is we never have the time. A few months ago we came across the cutest little desk on Craigslist being sold for no more $15, yes you read right $15! It was an offer to good to resist and the desk was in a pretty decent condition, perfect for our first makeover effort.



The top of the desk had quite a bumpy texture and a few other nicks here and there which we sanded away and then used a woodfiller to smoothen out the surface. It was a job we could have easily accomplished over two weekends but with our crazy schedules it took us a few months to get the job done. We used some left over paint from previous projects and bought some new hardware and bought a paint sample to use to paint them. And wahla!






For now this will be our fist and last makeover, hopefully when we have more time on our hands we can find a new peice to work on. Till then we will enjoy our new desk and bask in the satisfaction of something we did, together.
