Just note that there is a bug flying by in the picture above. Sorry about that! I do wish we had summer weather still, then I could be cranking out more projects. For not I have to be patient and work slowly....
I bought this desk off of craigslist. It was leftover from a garage sale after it did not sell. Once I got it home I lightly sanded everything down. I chose to paint it a light blue color, but left the inside natural wood. I assumed paint on the writing surface would take more work to keep it clean and nice. After the paint was all dried and cured I gave the painted surfaces a coat of Minwax Paste Wax.
I was definitely sad when someone wanted to buy this lady, but I did end up selling it. After that I decided I wanted one, but they are hard to find and somewhat expensive. I ended up finding one that is dark wood and slight different, but I still love it! You can see it in the background of some pictures from this post. Here is a glimpse at what mine looks like. I got this one off of craigslist for $40 :)
There's also a peak at my headboard, an old paneled door, which I named my blog after (since it was my first project). Maybe I will show it one day... Anyway, I have to say I liked the legs on the blue spinet desk more than the one I have, but I like that this one is different. And if you are wondering, I do not plan on painting my spinet desk. I need some unpainted wood pieces in my room to keep me sane, and dark wood is my favorite. I love painted furniture, but in moderation.
