My FIRST wood project!

I LOVE my new desk! The desk cost 25$, then I spent about 18$ on paint and primer, I think it's a pretty good price, since I can't go to a store and find something like this! I absolutely love it! I can't wait to have all fun craft stuff in it! I finally feel like a real crafter now that i've redone a piece of furniture! So here is the
The top edge turned out great, it was so fun sanding it! I spray painted the hardware black because I wasn't big on the brass color, and I didn't want to go spend money on cute hardware, I love how it pops against the white!
I loved sanding the drawers to match!
I love the two legs on it, it adds so much to it! I loved sanding this part to add even more character, it turned out better than I could have hoped!
I love how even the bottom has character!
For a first project, I think it turned out great! All I did was sand the top a little, primed the whole thing with 2 can's of Rustoleum Painter's Touch white Primer, then I used 3 can's of Rustoleum's Painter's Touch Flat White Spray paint! Then I sanded all the edges like crazy to give it the wonderful used look. The hardware was sprayed with Rustoleum's Painters Touch Black Spray paint. It was super easy, and turned out perfect for me! I am totally in love with it and can't wait to move it into my craft room tonight!
