Anyway, back to the project.....
My husband and I learned a few years ago that we could actually redo furniture! He actually does the hard part...the sanding and all. And he's actually a better painter/stainer than me....the trick is to take your time...and I'm always in a hurry! I want everything done YESTERDAY!
But I'm the more creative one, with a vision for the end result. And when I saw this little desk in the middle of a bunch of
|You can't tell here, but it's VERY yellow and scuffed up....|
and I don't decorate with yellow. It also looks 'little girlish'.....so an update is VIP!
There is a place near where we live that we like to visit from time to time. I know alot of people who are actually afraid to go in there. It's a huge old warehouse and it's VERY dark in there! Kinda used to give me the creeps....looks like where someone might get mugged - ha ha!
We don't go in there alot, but if you really look, you can find some great deals! Especially if you like to redo furniture like we do :)
|Scott sanded it for me....|
I decided to spray the desk instead of using a brush.
I chose SATIN Heirloom White for the desk and SATIN Nickel for the hardware.
I've decided I'm in love with the SATIN Nickel colored hardware!
I decided to spray the lamp bases on our night stands....and I'm looking for anything else that could use this color....picture frames, a shelf, etc.
I chose this particular color for the desk because I am planning on painting my entire bedroom suit! I know it's a major undertaking, but I think it will be well worth it. I'm looking for a new comforter that will go with the new color scheme as well. I can't wait to show before and after pictures of our bedroom. We've been in our home for two years and I'm just now getting around to really decorating our room. I want it to be special and romantic and our little get-away......as well as a study area :)
