Desk Re-do

I thought I'd share a furniture re-do with you today. I needed a desk for my craftroom that had drawers for storage(I really needed the drawers) and so I found this on Craigs List. The desk had good lines and was sturdy and had drawers. I used Annie Sloanes Chalk Paint in white.
After I painted I sanded and than used the clear wax to finish it.
I had to do 3 coats, because of the orange undertones of the wood. I was very pleased with the outcome. I had to replace the middle drawer pull, from my vintage stash. I think it looks okay.
Here it is in my new craft room. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you'll notice that my new room looks alot like my old craftroom. I wanted to keep my stuff, so I painted it a similar blue, and added my reds, pinks , greens and a touch of yellow. I'll be showing more soon.
Oops, I forgot to put the chair back. Anyway, it works great, and has lots of drawers!!!!
Weather is beautiful here in Texas after a really rainy weekend. Hope your weather is getting springlike! Have a good one!
