I'm going to start posting some of the projects I've been working on in the past few months. Tonight I'll start off with a desk I purchased a few months ago. I'd been looking for a desk for awhile, but hadn't had much luck finding anything that was the right size and price, or made from something besides reinforced cardboard. So I was pretty excited to find what I wanted during an afternoon visit to Goodwill. The desk is made from sturdy wood, and has lots of internal storage. The price? A very nice $25.
Before (note the knob missing from the bottom drawer on the left):
After (the black metal knobs are from Home Depot):
Before (note the chipping on the corner; a hunk was also missing from a top corner, but I filled it in with wood filler):
After (check out the desk's gorgeous detailing):
Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, thought the paint is still a bit sticky, which makes worry I didn't give it enough time to dry in between coats (or it could be an effect of this darn Texas weather...).
