The Old Pine Desk

This desk was found at my local thrift store.  Which has been very good to me actually.  I have found some really good pieces there.  Just takes persistence I guess.

It started out like this when I found it.

It is all pine and has no nails to speak of in it.  Except to attach the molding around the bottom.  I guess that is so the wood can expand and contract as pine is wanting to do.  I didn’t care for the hardware on it so that came off and I filled the holes from them because I wanted to put just pulls on it with a center hole. 

I have used this color combination before, you can see it here.  Its a really soft off white called Country Beige  and the darker color is Barefoot Beach both by Olympic.

I painted the new knobs the light color after first painting them with Annie Sloans old white, thought the paint might stick better. 

There was no distressing or colored wax put on this piece.  I did put a clear wax on the sides and drawers and a poly on the top.
Have a great week everyone!
