i’ve got an afternoon of before & afters coming up (i’m posting until 2pm today, rather than 1pm) today, so i wanted to start things off with these fun projects from stacey and stephanie. first up- stacey‘s make-under. stacey’s boyfriend phil found this old desk on the side of the road covered in graffiti and dirt. the legs had been unevenly cut (and were covered in packing tape) and where a drawer had once lived, only a paneling and rails remained. so phil and stacey sanded down the wood, polished the legs with brasso, finished the top with tung oil and found brand new feet for $2 at a hardware store. the result? a perfectly cleaned and brand new table. great work, you guys!
