The Office... And a Desk Redo...

Since our big move back into our home in April (read that story here), My husband has been working from home in his office.  The office is really the only room we haven't gotten to yet.  Before we moved back in, I painted the walls in Benjamin Moore "Grey Owl".  Our plan is to do a built in desk, but until the budget allows, he was making do using an old table as a desk.  There is no where to put his stuff, so it remains in boxes.  I found a desk for FREE on CL... and best of all, the seller lives in our neighborhood so he also delivered it : ).  So, I decided to get the desk and refinish it for him to use until we do a large built in desk.

Nick's office before we moved out in 2009:

 Free Desk After:

I first stripped the top of the desk and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut and then sealed with 4 coats of clear poly.  I then primed and spray painted the base and replaced the hardware.  I also added a shelf and some moulding to the tower portion of the base because my husband uses a laptop.
