What a Difference Paint Makes! (Desk Redo)

Today's entry is courtesy of the boy and shows what a difference some paint and effort can make.

Once upon a time the boy bought this sad little desk from a guy on Craigslist for a mere $20. It wasn't impressive in his current state, but the boy thought it had potential.

So he rebuilt the damaged corners and gouges with wood filler, cleaned it, sanded it down, and repainted it black. He also spray-painted the hardware metallic. And then the desk was happy.

And the boy was happy too, although he vowed to tame the cord dragon soon.


  1. Bob Vila can suck it!

  2. Hei sis! Your garden looks beautiful! How I wish we were there... =) The boy seems to be doing a great job around the house, you say hi to him, ok?

  3. That looks a million times better!
