    Ok my dear that desk came out fab. I can see where it would get snatched up quickly. I love the wedding photos. Your daughter is beautiful. Looks like her mom. Have a great week.

  2. Trish says:

    Awesome job on the desk. Cute daughters! Congrats

  3. Anna says:

    I have a desk just like this that has been sitting in my garage since last Fall when I picked it up. I did not know how to paint the top, or if it would even paint. when you initially painted it the first time did you have to sand it down or anything, or just prime and paint. I have not tried CC Caldwell paint yet, but I am thinking I am going to have to get me some for this desk I want in my office.

    I love a good story about an orphaned piece of furniture who turns into the beautiful princess. Brita is radiant in the photos!

  7. Jayne says:

    I can’t believe someone would throw out that desk! And it was given two very different and equally fabulous looks!

    That is such a sweet little desk. Hard to believe anyone would be so cruel as to use it as a trashcan. It really looks like a Cinderella now!
