Revitalization of Free Desk

The revitalization of the old plywood/pine boards 1940's drop front 3 drawer ...
 Free Desk
Here is the before (and it was pretty nice in this state)
click here for more 'before pictures'

Usually I paint with ASCP.
This desk is staying in the kitchen so
it is painted with oil based Premium alkyd semi-gloss 'English Pine'
 the color of some of my painted cupboards.

This was a '2 person' project - I got the tarp out and took pictures.
DH painted. I am good at 'cleaning up' too.

The sunshine was a bonus.

The desk made a great 'mantle for an earlier post this week.
So far the new knobs are 'natural' but will likely get a coat of something soon.

I'm happy with the result and really happy with 3 drawers (filled already).

Cost of project: replacement wooden knobs. Paint on hand, desk free.
Thank you DH

Glad you dropped by.
