more thrift store finds before

Current Close Desk

But nowadays, it’s all about this $8 beauty…

orange oak side table with white dog

Dated, orange…time for a brand name new look.


I pulled this from my stash to give it a test.

bottle of paint stripper

I preferred that it was biodegradable AND drinking water cleanup. Indeed!

I brushed it on and covered it with plastic wrap then enable it sit for an hour or so.

I arrived again to look at and it was functioning good.

scraping off stripper

I scraped off all of the finish and bought most of the stain out. Brilliant.
AND the very finest part…I cleaned up the residue with drinking water! That was a important win.
So considerably less difficult (and significantly much less chemical substances) than cleaning up with mineral spirits, and so forth.

I’ll attempt it out on a thing painted future and report back. 

I then sanded the prime and base shelf.

Eradicating that finish certain saved me a ton of time sanding.

I cleaned up all the dust from sanding and then utilized my fave, Driftwood Stain & Finishing oil to give it a model new shade and glimpse.

I utilized only just one coat and enable it dry.

At the time it was dry, I cleaned up the legs and the rest of the wood with a TSP different. Then I used Extremely Grip and allow it sit for the relaxation of the afternoon.

I followed that by taping up the bottom shelf about the legs and painting it in a pretty heat-toned white.
I didn’t want it bright white so this was the best shade.

Oh! But as I was cleansing all those legs, I recognized that it was lacking a piece of wood trim. Bummer. (scroll up to the “before” photograph to see the pieces that I’m talking about)

missing wood piece

I hadn’t seen that when I acquired it. Oh effectively, I just determined to get rid of them all considering the fact that they weren’t actually structurally necessary.
And I actually think it appears a lot more modern day, much less dated, with these absent. So earn-acquire!

I loaded the holes leftover with wooden putty and sanded them to paint.

I prepare to give the total factor (leading and base shelf involved) a coat or two of Matte Tricky Coat. I want to permit it remedy a bit prior to making use of that nevertheless.

In the meantime, listed here is the current stop desk with its brand name new glimpse.
