Finished project

I finally finished my desk!

Once I spent hours sanding the layers of disgusting white (probably lead-filled) pant off of the desk, I unearthed a beautiful tiger-striped grain. I couldn’t cover it!

Before:




After:


So, I roughed up the look of the desk by leaving a bit of the green and white paint flecked in the grain- I think it gives the desk a “I have lived in the back of an old barn for the past 70 years” look.



What do you think?

  2. It looks great. We are complete opposites. I paint mine white, you bring them back to the original form :)

    P.S. I love that cute tree print in the background!
