My Desk

Post by holly@instantgalaxy » Sat Nov 03, 2018 4:43 pm

Over the summer I have been working on projects around the house but I think my favorite one has been my desk. When I got my desk I already knew that someday I wanted to sand it down and restain it. It had some kind of wood sealer on it, but they didn’t even clean it first because it had dirt underneath the sealer and stains. The top looked like it was one color but when I started to sand it down, I noticed it had a pattern to it. I will show you pictures of it also. Instead of buying new go out and buy something old and take it home and sand it down and restain it, because the finished product will look new again.

2 handles for desk $2.00 for both of them
Stain for the desk only cost me 50 cents
Sandpaper was free

Total cost to me to redo my desk $2.50

This was the stain that was on it before I took it off the desk, if you look close it has water stains and dirt mix in with the stain it had on it.

This was after I sanded down the top and notice the top was different then before.

This was after I put the stain on it and it made the top pop in color.

I left some of the hardware on that it had before but also added some new hardware also.
