So this little gem was found at a Habitat for Humanity Restore. I must say I had my doubts when Kev brought this bad boy home, but for $50 he said if we didn't like we could always resell it. Not to mention it is a big desk to fill up that empty living room of ours.
Kev first removed the handles. Then he and his Dad sanded down the desk and took off all the black paint. I was at the beach for a bachelorette party (totally bummed to miss that :) ). When I called home to see what he was doin he told me he was "stripping." Luckily he meant stripping the paint! He then painted the desk and sanded the edges, and off course shellacked the top. Now you know where I will be blogging from in the future...well once we find a chair.
