I found this entertainment stand/desk at a thrift store that was going out of business for $80!!!! It is six large pieces. Every time we have to haul furniture up our windy stairs it is a total nightmare. Since this was going in my craft room/ play room/ hang out room it needed to go up the stairs! It could not have worked out better. It was a cinch getting it up there! Modeling it for us...we have the notorious BATMAN! Gotta love it:)
It also came with two of these.. perfect for craft embellishments!!!
Step #1- First I removed all the hardware. I cleaned it well and gave it a light sand.
Step #2- Priming... I decided to use spray paint for this project. It worked out great but was not as cost effective as I would have liked it to be. I kept going back for more and more and more.. you get it.... Next time I will try a paint sprayer when you are covering a lot of area. For smaller projects spray paint would be wonderful.
Step # 3- Paint
Step #4- Sanding the edges.
Step #5- Glazing. To glaze I used a pre-mixed brown glaze that I had left over from doing some faux-painting. I brushed it on heavy with a foam brush and then wiped it off lightly with damp cloth.
Step #6- Protect or Polyurethane. I just used the spray paint kind.
Step # 7- For the hardware I used the hammered spray paint in a black finish. I love how it made them look brand new!
Step # 8- Put it all back together!!!
I have a lot of work to do on my baskets and shelving but I am so excited just to have a start on this room! I even got an "I love it!" from the husband!
