Thrifting Day Desk

Thrifty Desk Makeover

Remember our big thrifting day, you can read about it here?

It was an awesome day and I’ve refreshed almost everything that I bought that day.

Most of the desk was wood, but these ornate drawers and the top were some unknown material.

Being an unknown non-wood product,  I broke out the big guns, Zinsser Oil Based Primer.

The oil based primer worked great!  I spray painted the original handles.

    The drawers are wonderful on that desk. My mom has a headboard in that style – she should paint it white like you have here. Great job – as usual!
