Desk Makeover Before and After
Let me introduce you to Blah…
Blah with a scratched top…
What I did:
Removed hardware, lightly sand and stained with dark walnut stain.
Sanded the top and stained with dark walnut.
Cleaned the base, painted 2 coats of a custom mix color.
Glazed with General Finish Van Dyke Brown Water Based Glaze, finished with a water based satin top coat.
Before the hardware color was a light stain, after it matched the new dark walnut of the top of the desk. This hardware was pretty cool, I had never seen any like it with the wood in the middle. I knew I had to make it work. I love it when I can reuse hardware.
I believe there’s hope for every piece of furniture and if all else fails, paint it turquoise or some shade of blue/green!
