I needed a desk for my new place and instead of paying $80 or more for a desk, I spent around $50 for a desk that I fixed up. It was a pretty fun project. I am glad my aunt and mom knew what they were doing. I talked to them many times to figure out what do to. I sanded, spray painted, painted with Glidden Misty Aqua paint, and purchased new pulls for the desk. It turned out great.
