Finally Done..... Before and After Pics

This desk was sitting out in our field, left by our neighbor that had to move and didn't take this with her. Her loss my gain. At first I thought I would just take it to the dump but then my mind starting working over time and this is what I came up with. Ugly ducking to a beautiful swan.


 I lined it with pink scrapbook paper that looked stressed. I loved how it turned out.
 Love the new knobs even though it didn't need them.

This last picture is updated on 4/06/2015. Added the top but haven't painted it and probably won't. I do like the two together though.

Well... what do you think?? 


  1. What a wonderful transformation!! Thank you for sharing with Friday Favorites, we love having you :D

  3. Such a difference! There's nothing more satisfying then transforming something so it works beautifully in your home. I'd be tempted to add a stencil or two.
