2 FUN NEW PIECES AND FIXING A BROKEN DRAWER

I love little accent pieces just as much a big substantial ones.  Fun and bold way to add great a pop of color to a room.  That's just what my customer was thinking as well.

This antique desk look great in with the modern yellow finish.



And I KNEW this guy was going to look awesome... sitting all alone in the corner of my "stash", waiting for someone to notice it's potential:)


Little gold "rub and buff" on the original dingy hardware and they look perfect with this piece!

I knew the desk was SUPER old and needed some TLC before I even got to sanding.  It became more apparent when I removed one of the drawers and it fell onto the floor into 5 pieces!!  OOPS!!!

Wood glue and a nail gun to the rescue.  It's really like a puzzle, dabbing wood glue in the groves, taping it back together and bungee strap it tight until it's completely dry.  If you have a nailer, throw in a few nails too.  But if you don't, the wood glue will work just fine:)

Super easy to fix a broken drawer.  I actually ended up wood gluing all the drawers, just in case.


All better!



Check out the "before" pics...how sad did they look!!
