The FREE Desk Facelift

I am a "FREE" craigslist stalker.  Anyway, this desk was for free and it was just down the road.

I had hubs pick it up for me and a coat of primer, 3 coats of paint and new hardware and wa-law.

A lady is coming to pick it up for $40 tomorrow.  Probably could have got $60 for it but we are moving in a week (fingers crossed) and I wanted it gone. Hubs would kill me if I made him  pack this into the moving van. It's laminate and heavy!

White paint fixes EVERYTHING

Even UGLY faux wood laminate desks.

And new hardware makes it 10x's better. 

Can't wait to finish my retro-fitted redesigned computer desk.  I'm hoping to finish tomorrow, if it ever stops raining (dang Seattle), so I can fnish cutting the shelves.
