We scored big time.. I offered to give the guy something for his kindness a drink... a big mac.. something. Nope he was glad to get rid of the stuff. I was even tempted to buy a paint mixer.. yes a paint mixer I could make any color of paint I wanted, but It didn't fit in my truck.. darn it!
So here is the before, not bad..
and the after:
Here is the base primed first with GRIPPER sealer/primer then regular paint color Valspar Oatbran.
Then once the paint was dry I flipped it over and applied my Gel Stain-Dark Walnut to the top using a foam brush that I could just chuck after.
The drawer was just a sheet of wood it had not back or sides for some reason. I think it was for a key board. I wanted a drawer so that things would not fall out of it. I added sides, back and a larger front and some hardware to the drawer
It's all finished..
my free desk all done :)
My husband liked the desk so much he took it to use.. he he he.
Have a great day! The sun is out hip hip hooray!!
Awesome score! I guess it pays to visit family ;-)ReplyDelete
Yes it does!Delete
This is kind of a crazy question but do you happen to know what paint color is your walls in the room you are taking the pictures. I love it!ReplyDelete
My wall color is Ventanna from Pratt and Lambert.Delete
I love that table and all the detail on the sides. Great find and great job.ReplyDelete
What a great find!! FREE??! It turned out beautiful, great job!ReplyDelete
awesome. but please tell me it didn't stay next to that door... so everytime someone opens it the desk gets blammed into!ReplyDelete
No I put it somewhere else. That was just the only open wall that was close. Thanks for the concern.Delete
You made that desk look so amazing, what a great free find! I can see why your husband wanted to take it. :)ReplyDelete
