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