I showed you this little number in my last post:
A less-than-stellar garage sale purchase my daughter made for her new office. It obviously exhausted the previous owner's patience, and if my daughter hadn't actually paid money for it, I prolly would've chucked it in da garbage. It was THAT gross, though it did have pretty lines and such. Here's how she looks now:
I didn't do any repairs to the veneer other than use some spackle to fill in gaps. I cleaned and sanded best I could, then primed the bezeeses out of it. Maddie and I both did several coats of paint, then used a spray clear topcoat.
She may cover the shelves with some fabric, like I did on this desk way back when, using the same paint.
Which actually sits in Maddie's bedroom as I type.
She digs this color of blue/grey/green.
I added a pretty vintage-type knob, which my daughter promptly removed in order to use a satin nickel pull on 'er. Eh, whatev.
Sorry I don't have a paint color for ya. It's something I mixed up from a plethora of blue craft and wall paints I had hanging around.
She's a cutie. My daughter, I mean. Yeah the bookshelf turned out ok too.
I just hope she doesn't go buying anymore furniture for us to paint until I get my garage cleaned out.
And Maddie, dear, for future reference, peeling veneer is not a good sign.....
