Welcome back to Project Challenge: 6 bloggers challenging themselves to create something with a similar object. After checking out my furniture project, check out the other links and THEN link up your own furniture project!
This month's theme is furniture and I chose to remake a school desk.
It started out as your basic desk still used by millions of students today.
I removed the top and painted the base with Fusion Mineral Paint in Seaside. This is such a pretty color and is part of a limited collection.
The coverage of this paint amazes me. Usually on metal like this it takes at least two coats to cover, but this is one coat only (except to go back and find the tricky spots I missed).
I then added two pieces of reclaimed barn wood, sanded well, for the top. I used the Fusion Mineral Paint all natural beeswax on the wood.
It makes a fun side table or nightstand, perfect for holding books and magazines.
NOW, check out the other bloggers' furniture projects--wow!
Now it is your turn--link up your furniture projects! And NEXT MONTH'S challenge is something made with some type of fencing. The party will be at the end of May!
