Months ago, a friend dropped off this old desk....she was moving and wanted it out of her house, so it came and sat...on my front porch....like a "hill-billy-house-with-a couch-on-the-front-porch"....for too many weeks!
Hubby finally said....Enough! Get this thing out of here! But the problem was....I was feeling uninspired!
I had spray primed it and tried spraypainting it, but it wasn't turning out like I pictured in my mind....
I let it sit....for many more weeks and then pulled out the roller and paintbrush and painted it the "old-fashioned" way!
After all of my hard work, I grabbed that sandpaper and started to distress it....
....and distress it some more!
But then....I hit this little snag...the drawers! I had the brilliant idea to use scrapbook paper instead of fabric. I wanted to mod podge it to the drawer....the only problem....the scrapbook paper was too short!
So....it sat some more until I finally went and bought some contact paper....so much easier to work with!
Then...I spraypainted the handles with my favorite go-to color Krylon Oil-Rubbed Bronze!
But....alas....I had drip marks....so that caused another week (month!) of delay as I tried to decide what to do....I just started over with primer and it covered my mess!
So finally......here is my desk in all her glory! After about 5 months....I think that she turned out beautifully!
Have you ever had a project that you've been "stuck" on?
