A Look Ahead at the Weekend

A couple months back we began the process of redoing Ren's room. This weekend, we'll take another step (hopefully) toward finishing that task with the staining and painting of this little desk. My sister told us about it after spying it at a little thrift store in Portland. Since buying Ren a cute, shiny, pearl-white chair at Home Goods prior to even repainting her room, I have wanted to find some type of desk or writing table to go with it. This is a little smaller than I had envisioned but we'll see if we can make do with it. With a little stain, a little distressed paint, and some new hardware it should add a nice touch to her room.

My goal is to have it finished by Monday. We'll see. Keep your fingers crossed!

Looks like a nice project. I hope you will show some before and after shots!

Well, IF I survive this project I will be sure to post photos. So far things are not going as planned. I had wanted to stain the top of the desk dark walnut and paint the rest bistro white. Turns out, maple is not the easiest wood to stain dark. :<(
