There is nothing better than getting furniture for free. This hall runner table was actually beautiful as is, but I couldn't help myself.
So it started like this.......
After a few years I decided to paint it and use it as a desk for my room. So it went to this.......
I loved how well it turned out but a year later I went from sharing a room to having my own room and decided it was time to really decorate. I wanted my desk to stay with the rustic look so I started sanding it down and scraping the paint off to give it a face lift once again.
Once I got the look I was looking for I decided to stain it with my coffee colored stain to match the room more. I also spray painted the knob silver (instead of buying a replacement knob) to give it more of a chic look.
I love how this experiment turned out!
