First Desk Makeover!

Seriously, I'm jumping for joy! I have been so envious of all the other bloggers out there with their cheap furniture finds and the amazing transformations. I have been searching and waiting for a desk to go in the extra bedroom. Well it paid off... Goodwill, I'm in there every other day now. I found this desk for $25!

Missing knobs, stickers and lots of damage to the top

And here is the after!

Its still missing the bottom pull handles, I've gotta go to Lowe's and pick some up. Otherwise its finished!
I sanded and restained the top then stripped and painted the rest. I only used one coat satin finish to give it a slight distressed look.

The top came out beautiful!

One coat of paint gives it a little character

Its home will be in my new craft room that I'm busy painting today :)
