New Writing Desk, Time to Re-Finish a Desk

Pin It
After finishing all the work on the books for Kindle, I needed a project that was just for me. Off to an area flea market and this is what I found.   I think it was at one time a vanity, had no bench and no mirror and it measured PERFECT for the spot I want it to go in.

So, it's become my new writing desk.

And yes, it will be painted.

From the looks of this leg someone tried to remove the stain and then gave up.

Wonderful solid construction

This is the deGlosser, if you've not tried it, it works very well. Like sanding sealer but without the smell and it's quicker.

The drawers are great.

  1. I want to paint my Dollar Desk (I bought it for a dollar at the Salvation Army, so thus the name) I use for cutting in my sewing room. What do you do to prep your furniture to paint? Do you sand it to remove the varnish or use a deglosser? My desk weighs a ton. It's a huge executive desk, so getting it upstairs was a huge challenge, so I need to paint it where it stands, in my sewing room.


Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you are thinking and for being KIND.
