Desk Redo

Happy Tuesday evening! One by one I am getting rid of my "girly" furniture.  Our {office} is almost finished, thank goodness!  This is what my desk looked like:

I actually remember buying this desk with my Momma in middle school.  It traveled to college with me my Sophomore year, and got painted black.  Then it came back to Dallas with me after college and received this stenciled top.  As you can see the move was not easy on this baby, but I knew before I moved it needed to be re-done.  

First, I sanded this baby and that was really fun.   All that painting over the years made is so easy to get all the paint off.  Just FYI I am never sarcastic.  

I stained the top and went over it with this wax.  

 I love wax.  It is so much easier than using a poly and looks so much smoother. 

I did a couple of thin coats of Behr Dark Granite, followed by a layer of wax.  Everything is coming together, except for this chair...

This chair intimidates me, big time.  I only have one last careful with stain.  

I flicked stain all over the wall and day bed.  If you follow me on instagram you know this is not the only stain incident this week.  If you don't then I will catch you soon!  Hope you have a great rest of the week!
