Pedestal Desk

Was so excited to find this great pedestal desk.  It was in almost perfect condition, just needed a little updating--in my opinion. ;)



I usually like the contrast of dark hardware on a light colored piece, but I love how replacing the pulls with knobs and painting them all white gives it a soft, clean look.

Tip for a great finish:  Sand, sand, sand....between every coat....yup, every one (sometimes that's a lot of sanding, but it's totally worth it!).  220 btwn coats is good, and then I like 320  or finer for final coat.

Primed with an oil based primer (SW) and painted Westlhighland White (SW).
