White Desk

Here is another garage sale find.

People are always looking for desks for their children or grandchildren to to their homework.


This was a good candidate for paint.

I used a Sherwin Williams color  "Crisp Linen" mixed at Home Depot in their Behr Ultra satin finish.

I distressed the edges and put a clear wax on the drawers and body of the piece.  I then used Poly on the top to make it more durable.  I put the original hardware back on and called it done.

Have a great week.


  1. I Like the white paint on your desk it should sell fast. I also paint furniture and agree that people are looking for good quality, functional pieces like desks, and dressers. Thanks for sharing Humble Abode

  2. It looks quite lovely...wish you were here!
