What a Difference Paint Can Make......

To look at this piece you would wonder why I ever bought it.....,
And the fact is, I didn't.
It was one of those things that just "comes to you".
And.....I never, ever turn down FREE.
It stayed in the Shoppe in it's current state, and
In it's defense, looked a whole lot better than this.
I had already started sanding it when I took the picture....
Still, you can tell.....it was definitely lacking appeal,
But had great lines, being an art deco piece.

And when you looked inside, well,
You fall in love.....
So glamorous.
 Painted, it defines the lines and gives it new life.
Not so heavy, and definitely girlie.

Being one that usually just paints the hardware because
I really dislike removing it all and then replacing it,
I just had to take the time on this one.
The hardware itself was beautiful and deserved to be shown.

The inside was left as found......I just love blond wood.

Overall, I am pleased with the end result of the desk....
And free is always good.

Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come...
If this is your first time here and you choose to follow,
Please know I always follow back :)
