A transformation that took me back to 3rd grade.

Remember those old school desks?  I spotted this one in the local Habitat Restore.  It was marked $19.99.  I passed it by but saw it again right after Thanksgiving and they had a 25% off sale.  I asked if they'd take $10 and they said yes!

It was already naturally distressed.  It was also VERY nasty and even scrubbing with TSP didn't help so I sanded and  painted it with Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee.  I removed the seat and desktop, cleaned and re-finished them. 
I left some of the old paint and distressed it slightly.  It's a cutie!


I've got tons of projects that I've completed and hope to post more over the holidays!  Stay tuned!


Happy Holidays!
