The Black Desk

Although not complete, the black desk will make its debut. It is still in the garage after another pollen dusting and then rain again for a few days. It looks favorable for completion this week! The hardware is ok, so it will say for now... So, here is the before:

And, here is the after!

I think it looks pretty good for a first try! Now I need to go to Home Goods and spend money to make it look nice. I already saw a letter holder that will look wonderful!!! I am picturing a very cute lamp that I hope to win on http://mycottageofbliss.blogspot.com/2009/05/celebrating-with-giveaway.html. So cute! My room is yellow, as that is the color that "failed" in my kitchen-so it was used in the spare room! Someday, there will be an unveiling! I will try to take some house pics to share.

  2. Nancy, I have taken a cue from you and have decided to paint my old entertainment center black, just like your desk. I have added a link to your desk project in my post. Thanks for inspiring me! http://readyset40.blogspot.com/2009/05/decorating-my-nest.html

  3. I love the transformation! Wish I had a spot in my house to put a desk like that with a pretty black makeover! :)

  4. Wow, that looks really great in black.

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your desk is very pretty. Saw where your husband was out of a job for a while. Mine was at for 8 months then had one to get us by and just got a nice job 2 weeks ago.
