View Larger Image Before and After – Black Desk [This article was originally posted in July 2013] I know, I know – another desk?! But I loved this desk. I bought it for $30. It was huge. But I loved it still… My diamond in the rough. I decided not to paint this one, but to use a stain with a polyurethane all-in-one. I went with black because – although I planned on stripping it down and sanding it – I wasn’t sure how deep some of it’s stains would go. Look at him! My black beauty – complete with new hardware! Isn’t he GORGEOUS! My black desk with pull-outs?! Be still my heart! It’s wrong how attached I get to this stuff isn’t it? Here’s the “magic juice” that transformed my black desk; If I could have fit this bad boy down my staircase, he would have come to live with me in my little studio… but alas. Now he’s helping a Medical Resident prepare for his board exams. Can’t say I didn’t do my share in saving a life eh? lol Have a great one!
