About a month ago, I shared with you some pieces I purchased at a yard sale. I'm sorry to say that they've all been sitting in my shed since I bought them. I think the task of transforming anything that is in rough shape, while incredibly exciting in terms of creativity, can be a little draining when you know the work that is ahead. I finally decided to bite the bullet and start transforming the little desk....not because it was the best or worst of all the purchases, but because it was the easiest one to get out of the shed. :)
The finish, while very worn in places, wasn't sanding off easily in other places. This wouldn't matter, except my plan was to stain the desk top.
