I've been looking for an older desk, as our are the cheap fiber board corner desks you buy at Office Depot or other large chain stores. But, what I want to do is find a really nice desk like what you did and restore it and make it an accessory in the living room. We're planning to move over the next couple of years, and I'm already planning out what/how we want to do our next home.

You're making me feel lazy, Janie. Tongue

Thanks FT!

Believe it or not, this is how I like to relax. Everyone leaves me alone and I get to zone out and concentrate on turning something that had a lot of history for other people, give it some TLC and turn it into a new piece I can use. It’s very therapeutic!

Here’s a desk I finished a few months ago. Again, got it off craigslist. It was free.

Having the right tools and materials before starting a project is key. It doesn’t take me too long to tackle projects. Although, with two kids, I have to do things piecemeal and a lot of times, I’m painting at 10 at night!
