This could have been done a long time ago. I got into a funk last week; I didn’t cook, I didn’t clean, I didn’t craft. I was not myself. Thank God that’s over now. Tom is now complete! Though, I really don’t think Tom is an appropriate name any longer. I’m going to call HER Lola, because she is clearly now a girl.
Let’s remember what she used to look like:
And here she is today:
Gorgeous. She should be a model, seriously.
It was quite the process. I stripped.
I sanded until it was ready for paint.
The Husband helped me make a repair.
And it was finally ready for paint. I agonized over paint for a long time. I wanted it to be light. Not too baby blue, but not minty green either. I finally settled on Marina Isle by Behr and I chose the Paint and Primer In One in a semi-gloss enamel. It had good coverage, just two coats on most of the desk.
I used a brush to cut into the small areas, but a foam roller for everything else. The foam roller left a really nice finish.
Let’s take a little look at the before and after, shall we?
New hardware really classes it up.
I am in LOVE!
