Wow, it has been well over a week since I have posted. We are in the middle of a few projects, getting the yard area cleaned and ready for summer, and anxiously awaiting the end of the school year, which is dragging on and on. The school year seems even longer for Gman since his older brothers finished up their freshmen and junior year at college about a month ago. Nine more days to go and we will be free for the summer!
In the middle of all this chaos, I still had time to stop by my favorite shopping establishment…#GoodWill, several times, and walked away with this beauty…
I am so glad I decided to buy this little desk! I didn’t really have a place for it and it was in rough shape but it was only $10. Yes, ten dollars! I kept coming back to and in the end I am so happy I brought this baby home with me. I found the perfect little spot for it and the hubs agrees, which does not always happen! I love when things come together! In the beginning, I was not so sure.
This is what it looked like when I first saw it…
It was ugly and it definitely had an odor to it, but I still liked it! It was missing a knob, the hinge was broken, and it was covered in markers, paint and stickers. For 10 dollars, it was worth trying to do something with it.
The first thing I did was scrub it down with some cleaner and disinfectant. Then I got started with the sanding. I was surprised that it did not take that long to sand it down. Once the dust was wiped off really well, I stained it with a dark walnut stain. I am beginning to like the process of staining much better than painting. It is instant gratification when the stain hits the wood.
I also added Lion Head knobs on the drawer. I picked them up at Ace Hardware.
I have to say, I am absolutely loving this $10 GoodWill makeover.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
Until Next Time,
We Party Here:
