Procrastination Challenge # 3

I bought this desk at Goodwill August 6th for $12.00. I started painting it but quit because I was tired of working on it. Well, I put it on my list to do today and got it finished!! I LOVE it!! It doesn't even look like the same desk! It cost me a total of $18.00 for the overhaul. The handles were $13.00 and the spray paint was $5.00. Now I have a beautiful new sewing table that will be put to lots of use!

It was a lot of work to get this desk re-done. I had to sand off the old finish and repaint it and then polyurethane it. For the drawers I had to fill in the old handle holes, sand them, and then drill new ones but, well worth my time!!
