Library Desk

I'm so happy I feel like I'm in lala land! I haven't painted a piece of furniture in 8 months and so doing this transformation was just what I needed! Last week Nathaniel bought a truck and he kindly gave the keys up to me that very day so I could go hunting for something to paint! I came home with this!
And after a LOT of fun painting here it is....

We are going to put our home computer on this desk since it`s currently hiding inside a giant armoire which makes it difficult to use since there`s no place to put our legs LOL! So we will definitely get a lot of use out of this desk!!!

It's amazing how almost all old furniture always looks better when it's painted white. The details come alive.

Beautiful job. I have a similar one I have been wanting to paint, now I need to get to it. Thanks for the info on the stairs. I think the tool is a sawzall. I am going to try this. We painted our steps white. Not the best choice to keep them looking good. Constant cleaning! Yours look so nice.
