In an effort to settle into our house, there are a few furniture items we still need. I have been searching Craigslist until we find the perfect item, and the perfect (ie cheap) price and then snatch it up!
We found this writers desk back in the middle of winter but weren't able to work on it until it warmed up a bit.
It took a lot of work and my dear hubby helped me a lot with this project.
I forgot to take a photo before we sanded the desk, so here is my before-ish photo. Next we stripped it, and then re-stained it with a combination of two different stains in order to get just the right color. Then finished it off with two coats of polyurethane. And some new handles and knobs of course!
Isn't it a beauty? I love my laptop's new home!
