Here is the patient in need of rehab.
|Desk before photo|
I started off by removing the hardware and then gave it a good coat of Zinsser Bull's Eye 123 Primer which I picked up here.
After the primer was dry, I put on two coats of the Notable Hue and finished it off with two coats of sealer. I used Minwax Polycrylic and I think I purchased it here.
And now the big reveal!

Ta Da! I didn't do any distressing on it, so it is pretty straight forward and simple. I think it turned out pretty cute and will serve my new sewing machine well. I like the hardware and think that the pulls and knobs are perfect for it. I love how the nickel finish adds just a touch of sparkle. The pulls are Martha Stewart Living Bedford Canopy Cup pulls and the knob is the Goblet knob from the same line. I purchased them at Home Depot. .

Adding this little blue desk has inspired me to do some more work in this bedroom. It has always been a bit neglected and sort of a place for leftover furniture. I feel like it now has a little more direction and I can run with it. Perhaps I will make some pillows for the bed with my new sewing machine (once I get it out of the box!).
Hope you enjoyed this little rehab story. I have more patients waiting!
Until next time.....
