Today, I'm excited to share with you guys Ashlie's second guest post. Enjoy! And happy Fall everyone!
I have a confession to make...I LOVE white furniture. Not just plain white, but the "distressed, romantic, rustic white." Life is messy and blemished; I feel that my overall style in most things, including home decor, reflects this. That being said, I decided to tackle a project that has been sitting in my garage for months, untouched. My aunt and uncle were getting rid of a hand-made solid oak desk and I willingly accepted it. My uncle used to own a cabinet door business and sometimes utilized his shop for side projects. This desk was one of them.
When refinishing anything wood, you really should take the time to at least lightly sand down the surface. It will make a huge difference for your finished project.
I just love this new desk Ashlie and her hubby did, what do you guys think? White washing really can be such a great and inexpensive way to update an old piece. Have a great day everyone!
