Writing Desk Re-Finished with Paint

Pin It
 I hear it all the time, why paint? and as I say to my mother, "Why not."  
I'd paint everything,  change it, make it mine. This is not an expensive piece of furniture, even in it's day, it wasn't. So I'm making it mine !  Project start - HERE


Writing Desk Re-Finished with Paint

I did it in sections, it was to hot in the garage this summer, so had  plastic and paper down in the desks new room.

Had an email from Amy at  A Quilting Sheep and she asked my process, my email back to her.

"I like the de-glosser, it's great. Just takes off the shine. You put it on, let it dry and paint. Don't have to remove anything. And it has very little smell. Try an inside door it you like first. I deglossed in the garage and then painted in it's room.

I do de-glosser, primer, paint, with this desk I  did not put a sealer on. The paint looks great. After everything is dry, 48 hours, use a heavy brown paper sack and go over everything like sand paper, makes it so soft."

My sewing studio will no longer be my office too ! Have to separate the mind work from the creating work.

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.


Re-finishing a Desk

And yes, it will be painted. 

Re-Finish a Desk 

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

Writing Desk to Re-Finish a Desk

Wonderful solid construction


Desk to Re-Finish a Desk

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.
