#8: Sharon from Elizabeth and Co., congratulations! I’ll send you your download link soon.
Since we are closing on a new house next month, we are exhausted from pulling all kinds of things out of our current house (such as the built-ins we paid a pretty penny for) and we are also scouring CL to place furniture in spaces with different dimensions. It’s been nuts around here. It will be so nice to downsize and also save money on utilities because we won’t be heating or cooling 20 foot ceilings. I thought I’d share a $60 solid wood desk that I found on CL last week that will be perfect for my new home office.
Here it is, being unloaded.
The owner did a lot of patching with wood filler (a little too much, really), which I had to sand down before painting it.
The top was absolutely beautiful; it just needed to be refinished. Ahhh, love that wood grain.
(I have no idea what it is, though.)
I love the way the top came out; so rich and pretty.
The top has many light and dark wood inlays around the border which are simply gorgeous.
I painted it in Acadia White (an Aura color) and glazed it to bring out the details.
This thing is 6 feet long and will be situated in the middle of my office with a rug underneath.
I kept the original hardware and just painted it black.
A view of the sides…
I have some finished pieces that are going into Audrey’s shop January 12th which I haven’t shared because between moving, my sister’s wedding in February, and planning her shower in just a few weeks, I’m running in so many different directions! I’ll be back, though
