Even my husband has now given into my yard sale obsession. This pays off for me in a lot of ways. All of the credit for finding this piece is owed to him. While driving home from work on a random Thursday night, he passed a great sale around the corner. He called me, I came out with the cash and walked away with this beauty... for only $3.00! That's right. I gave them a five and actually got change, while walking away with an awesome new piece! To be honest, I kind of ran since I felt like taking this desk for $3.00 was highway robbery.
The paint I applied was Martha Stewart Anjou Pear. Immediately after painting it, I questioned my decision not to stain it instead. The texture of the wood was so rich and the grain was simply fabulous. Something I overlooked before a quick coat of paint. I compromised my original decision by sanding down the paint and exposing a lot of the desk's original personality.
Now with the finished product, we can all just sit and enjoy. Well, she, can sit and enjoy. I have a lot more work to do to put that fabulous Amy Butler fabric to good use and update my big girl's room. I guess you'll just have to come back for some sneak peeks and the finished product!
I'll be linking up to these great parties this week, as well as the CSI Yard Sale Challenge.
Hope you will stop by and join us all!
