Remember this guy? It's my $30 yard sale find (well, actually, Dee found it and made me get out of bed and walk across the street to buy it because he had to go to work, the nerve!). It was ugly and out-dated to be sure, but I had a vision and wanted to try to bring it forward a few decades.
My men worked hard and sand it well.
Richard helped me paint it a high gloss Behr paint, color "Beluga". It's the same color as my front door which needs re-painting so no paint was wasted in the renovation of this desk! We found a set of two steel drawer pulls at IKEA on sale for $2.95 then took two weeks to put them on! I had to go to Home Depot twice, once to get the right length screws; the drawers are very thick up front. Then a second time because IKEA sells metric screws...not US standard! Just for future reference!
Not bad, huh?
Don't you love a deal?!
I did something I have never done before last week...
I dumpster dived!
Can it be saved?
I'll keep you informed!
Notice the extra legs back there? Sam is so nosey!
