With the idea of an expanding family, Luke and I have been looking at ways to cut the clutter. Two weeks ago we began our team effort (mainly Luke's effort ;) and made my 'old' desk 'new' with a good sanding & a couple of coats of paint. I love white furniture...if I had it my way, every piece of wooden furniture in our house would be painted white or very dark brown, like our new twin cots. I think Luke did a great job and it was fun to actually carry through with an idea that I had wanted for this desk for ages. Now there will be a lot more space in this part of the house and I get my old desk back! Here are a few pictures of what we did. It took about 5 days all up...if it were my choice we would have done it in 2 and I am sure it would have looked quite poorly! :) Luke finished off the desk, sanding it back along the edges to create that rustic look that my two other pieces of white furniture have.
