DIY – weekend desk project – refinish

It is difficult to calculate the number of total hours worked on this project. We worked on it when we ‘made time’ to dedicate. If i had to guess, i would say about 20 beers. As noted, we had to replace the top and the knobs (), we had all necessary materials available (eg sandpaper, stain, wood finish, etc.) It appears this desk was originally white with gold inlet and oxidized brass caps on each leg. We removed layers of black, dark blue, two different purples, pink and some white paint. We could not remove the paint from the leg caps, so we had to sand them as well. I am very surprised with the finished product, i really did not believe it would end so nicely. The photographs are not reversed, this is a left handed desk. Since we are not left handed, this will work out to be my sewing machine table (… all i need now is to learn to sew).

Wood Conditioner

Prestain wood conditioner is often necessary when staining wood. Tim Carter of AsktheBuilder.com demonstrates why it’s a must to use wood sealant before staining soft wood. Soft wood, such as white pine, is very porous and will soak up too much of the stain. This won’t let the grain of the wood show through. Paint the wood conditioner on and it drys in just fifteen minutes. Then, you can stain your wood and get a beautiful finish. Watch this video AsktheBuilder.com for more details.
