Anyways. Ive been working on a few projects and this one..this one I just finished yesterday. I found her while I was driving home..someone had hauled her out to the curb destined for the dump (tsk tsk) and I saved her. The Mister was in need of a new desk in a bad way, (I thought anyways as he could really care less about important stuff like that) so this.find.was.perfect.
Now, when she did make it inside....tragedy. My spray primer ended up being crap and all my new black paint and cherry stain glaze started to peel off everywhere except the drawers...I KNOW..Ugggg..crappy! So I had to super sand her all over again...and start over...which I KNOW you all can imagine is full of pain!
The Mister wanted "manly" I wanted turquoise or purple...we obviously disagree'd but I needed his help to get the ridiculous heavy piece moved around as well as the ugly old desk outt a here..so he won. For the new paint job I choose oil to make it more durable..it was black...supposed to be black...but when I put the drawers back in..I realized there are a few different versions of "black" and this...this oil was more a gun metal grey...really tho, no big deal..gun metal grey is still "manly."
Please excuse the not-so-awesome picture..its even flash-free..but the office is a very well window endowed loft...so it is what it is..
I love her....but she was a mammoth amount of work only thanks in part to crappy primer *lesson learned* but The Mister needs a nice, quiet, clean, organized place to go whatevertheheckhedoes...so he deserves it I think...PLUS he did help me haul 2 gigantic, misshapen desks up and down 3 flights of curvy stairs...and never complains when I go to the thrift store every.single.day so really, whats a few blood, sweat and tears to show my appreciation?
