A little over a year ago, a friend gave me this free desk. I was so excited! I saw major potential! FINALLY...we got around to finishing it- or shall I say- my husband got around to refinishing it!
He then painted the white in flat lightly before putting on white in satin. We used Krylon spray paint. It look one of the flat, since it was put on lightly, and 2 of the satin for the entire desk.
To finish, he used 2 cans of Krylon Clear indoor/outdoor spray paint in satin. He put it on heavily on top and lighter on the sides. He said in the future he would use Minwax Polyurethane Spray instead because the desk top is so wide and that would have been easier to use.
The handles were done with brushed nickel spray paint which we already had on hand.
I love love love my desk! Of course I love my husband even more for completing it for me! For now it serves as a nightstand table. I found the little yellow ottoman on clearance at Target for about $20. It works perfectly since a chair would have been way too much next to the bed. Several months ago I redid- yet again- our master bedroom-well the bedding- on a dime- and I love the addition of this desk! I'll show you the Master later if you are interested... I have changed it a lot and probably will change it again- but hopefully not too soon.
Thanks for letting me share! I just love a free furniture make over!
