I want to share with you a makeover that I made couple of months ago. I was re-decorating my daughter's room and I used a little desk that I had and renew it for her room. Obviously my scheme color is totally different to her, LOL, so I grab my paints, the desk and a Ethan Allen chair and started this project. Both pieces are Goodwill finds which means less than $25, not bad for a complete set.
First, I sanded down both pieces and the wood was in perfect condition. Cleaned well to remove any particle, painted and sanded again to give a distressed look. Then stained using Minwax, one of my favorites. These are the pictures of both pieces, before and after.
Before pic's... Sorry I forgot to take picture of the chair. It was light maple color.
See you soon and have a blessed day,
