Before and After: Desk/Console

This has been done so long and I never shared it!  I loved this desk the first moment I laid eyes on it.

It had these old stickers on it that weren't the easiest to get off.  A little elbow grease and an electric sander finally did the trick!

I love the way it turned out!  The thing I like best is that I was able to refinish the gold caps on the feet.  They were covered with a tacky multi-colored urethane, but I got it all of the old fashioned way.  I think the original, cleaned up hardware looks amazing next to the glossy black paint job.

Check the gloss and the paper.  I used scrapbook paper I had on hand to line the drawer.  Love the print.

What do you think???
