Ta dah !!

















Remember that ugly old desk pictured in my previous post that was ready for the junk pile? Well here she is all finished at last.

I love reviving old wooden furniture and giving it a new life, its always amazing seeing the end result.


I added new hinges, fixed the lovely old pigoen hole shelves that were falling apart , sanded the whole thing, applied many coats of paint, glued on the french moulds , rubbed it all back for that antique appeal and last but not least,a coat of clear sealer to make fingerprints easy to remove ..


I love how its turned out, now I just have to find somewhere to put it..Have a nice day!
