Desk To Nightstands In ONE week!
The Drab Desk before
1
First step was using a heat gun to remove all the old contact paper on the top of the desk. It was ugly and not even applied correctly!
2
Then I took her outside and sanded her down
3
I missed a few steps, but we cut the desk...once in two pieces I cleaned with white lightening
4
Honestly this stuff is magic. Put in spray bottle or add to warm water
5
Clean it , then rinse with water
6
Take off all your hardware and if keeping it you should clean it with Dawn dish soap or soak in a mixture of vinegar and water.
7
The hardware was indented into the wood :/
8
See the bat wings?
9
Needed to sand the top of the drawer to get rid of “bat wings“
10
I had to fill all the holes from the hardware and once mud was dry sand the drawer fronts down. Repaired damage to the drawers and feet!
Then we stained the Top in No Pain Gel Stain in Espresso and painted 2 coats Manatee Gray. Top coat in Gatorhide
11
Added new handles and added best dang wax in clear and black for depth and dimension
