{before & after} – WAS the ugliest desk ever!


So i seriously almost threw this desk away because it was so ugly, and someone had dumped a costco size bottle of liquid soap on it!  It was everywhere!

But, luckily the desk was sold before i painted it and I’m so glad – because it turned out great, much better than i thought it would :)

Before…ugg huh?

And after…

I painted it a creamy white, and because the wood underneath was a light wood, i took a little bit of black stain on a foam brush and rubbed the edges.  Then all the hardware was replaced with black pulls and a fun little knob in the center drawer.

I also lined all the drawers with some cute coordinating fabric – loved the way it looked.

So – you just have to look past all the ugly and see the furniture for what it can be with some fresh paint and some new hardware – so glad i didn’t trash this baby!!
