Kate at Weekend Charm found an old writers desk and chair and remodeled it to their own taste.
We snagged this old writer’s desk and chair off of Craigslist for $20! Of course they didn’t look like this when we got them, but look below for their absolute transformation!
To begin with……
1st step, remove drawers
2nd, remove pulls for painting.
3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th….sand, clean, prime, and paint (x3)!
7th, remove ugly tan vinyl cover from beaten up little chair and recover with cute fabric. (Sorry I forgot to get a before photo of the chair, it was in worse condition than the desk!)
We used Minwax Polyshade Bombay Mahogany stain on the top. I just LOVE the color and LOVE a stain and poly in one!!!!
Off-white on the rest including the chair, original hardware back into place, and finished!!!
The top coat is such a beautiful rich color, I can’t stop staring at it!!!
This will probably come in handy while I try to keep up with my continuing education in Physical Therapy!!
I was supposed to refinish her and give her up….I just don’t see that happening now!
I love the white desk with the wood top!
What do like about it?
