Pretty White and Coral Desk

So a few weeks ago I picked up this desk for $5 at a yard sale.  Let me say that again.  Desk. $5. Applause, applause! I could barely contain myself when I saw the price and gladly and quickly gave the woman my Abraham Lincoln to claim my prize. It's real wood with dove tail drawers that just needed a little love.  Want to see the transformation? As my kids would say in their best deep cartoon voices, "PREPARE TO BE AMAZED!"

But wait.  To really appreciate the beauty of this desk, lets look at the before pictures.

And so the transformation began and it started with sanding.  Love my power sander!

Now, she was ready to be painted.  She got two coats of primer first, then the base was painted an antique white.  The drawers were painted coral which I just added some white paint and more white paint to get that "Ombre" look.

I found beautiful glass knobs at Hobby Lobby during a 50% off sale.  Yes!  Love the knobs!  They add the perfect touch to the piece. The entire desk also got two coats of polycrylic to protect the paint. 

Once more...

Tell me what you think?
