Yesterday in my Thrift Store Haul post, I mentioned an ugly grey and blue desk that I bought for $5.99. Well, here it is. It might not look TOO terrible in the photo but the paint is SO heavy and there’s even a layer of brown paint underneath this, and then a layer of white under that. And then you finally get down to the brown wood which is its original color.
The two drawers down the side were jammed shut because of the paint. I knew my dad could fix it though, and he did. And then we spent all afternoon chiselling the paint off and sanding it. We’re only halfway done that though; as I said, there is a LOT of paint to come off. We had a really nice afternoon working together on this and talking. 🙂
I’m still so excited about what the end result will be. Isn’t it a perfect desk for a makeup vanity? I’ll be able to keep my makeup in the top drawer and maybe keep hair products and hand lotions in the other two drawers.
