I found this desk at Goodwill, probably from a dorm room, it's older but not antique, but very usable. I thought it had "great bones".
One of the front corners had been whittled away (why I am not sure) and it had this really ugly molding trim along the front sides only.
I popped off the trim and replaced it with some 5.5" molding that was pretty plain. Then I filled in the whittled away spot with some plastic wood compound.
The knobs were plain porcelain, but they were chipped and crooked, so I went to Hobby Lobby (last week all their handles and knobs were 50% off) and found these darling new knobs.
The knobs were white porcelain with blue polka dots.
Here is the whole picture all finished! I finished it the day before I had foot surgery. Instead of moving it up to my sewing room, I thought I would keep it downstairs where I can use it while recuperating since I am supposed to be non weight bearing for three weeks.
This desk will replace a folding table that I have been using for a sewing table.
Seven drawers!! I can't even think of what I can do with that many drawers!
But I am sure I can come up with some ideas!
Isn't it pretty? I am considering putting on some type of good finish on the top especially since it will have lots of wear there. Anyone have any ideas on what to do or what products to use?
I love the new molding at the bottom below the drawers! Looks perfect!
