This week has been busy around here. I painted some chairs…
I bought this at Faith Farm a few weeks ago, and it has been patiently waiting its turn to be prettified. Other than the discolored gold leaf finish on the top, this Thomasville desk was in great condition. Oh, and the hardware was not pretty.
Instead of re-staining, I had to paint it. I primed it and started to spray the rest. Again, I had problems with the finish on the top being splotchy so I waited for it to dry and painted over it with an enamel gloss.
I was going to paint the existing hardware, but it was damaged and crushed. It was just luck that I have a whole bag of new drawer pulls from a bedroom set that came with two sets. It was perfect for this desk!
