I finally finished re-doing an old desk that used to belong to my grandpa. Over the years, it has gotten pretty marked up to the point that it was looking like junk. So we didn’t see the harm in re-doing it.
It had a wood finished on it. But to make it more modern looking, painting it black seem to be the way to go. Also, new handles for the drawers helps make it look nicer. I wish I took a before picture but I forgot to.
After sanding it and putting 3 -4 coats of paint on it, I can say its done and looks good! I’m happy with the outcome.
