My New Desk!

Finally after 3 years I got a desk!

I found this guy at a flea mall for 100 bucks and the chair was 25 dollars. It took Todd forever to get started on the project... AND it took me forever to find the colors that I wanted. 
After about two months of sitting in our garage we decided to paint it white and do an antique glaze on it. AND a big thanks to VINTAGE REVIVALS for making an awesome tutorial on the process. The desk turned out amazing!
Before the glaze.

Final result! I am in love with it!!
I love how the glaze gets it to every crack and crevice! 

We could not decided what to do about the hardware... We tried just antiquing it with the glaze but it just did not look right. So we found this spray paint at Walmart that give a hammered finish to the end result. It went perfectly together.
The chair still needs to be painted... I was thinking of a bright color like yellow. To Be Continued...
