I picked up this gorgeous desk last summer with the intention on using it in the spare bedroom as a craft table. It just wan't large enough for a work space so I had to let it go.
It's a solid piece in great condition other than some chipped veneer on top. I glued down the veneer around the edges where it was lifting a little. I used wood filler and filled the spots where the veneer had chipped off.
Once the prep work was done I sanded the entire piece, primed with oil base kilz, and sprayed it a pretty light gray blue.
I lightly sanded the edges to make the details pop. I love how you can see the dark wood and white underneath.
This was a piece that was hard to let go of but I just don't have the space. Needless to say it sold right away.
Thank you Michelle for featuring my desk on your blog PRIMP.
