Gray and Copper Desk Makeover

All opinions and thoughts expressed within this post are 100% my own, however, this post is sponsored by D. Lawless Hardware. 

Welcome back my Beauties!
Its time again for the Fab Furniture Flippin Contest Makeover.
For this months makeover I chose this beat up beauty of a desk that a neighbor of mine was happy to leave with me. :) 

Each month, the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest challenges  a group of bloggers to flip a piece of furniture using a product from one of their fabulous sponsors.  This month’s theme is Class It Up! For this months Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest™ we teamed up with  D. Lawless Hardware.
This hardware company is a family run business in the United States that has a superior customer service.While looking for my specific sized hardware I had multiple options and styles for bringing my vision to life.
I picked out my hardware before I even started on my makeover because I wanted their beautiful hardware to be the jumping off point for my desk and go from there. 
Once I had my choice I went from there.
 First things first I had to sand this baby down. This desk had provided YEARS of service and it was time to give some life back to it. I used my random orbital sander and got the top of the desk down to the bare wood. 
Once the top was sanded I chose to use General Finishes Java Gel on the top with their topcoat. 
It gave me the rich color I wanted for the top of this desk.
Once that was stained and sealed I could get started on the base.

I chose a Driftwood gray color from General Finishes for the base. I was in love already but couldn't wait for the next part.

My BEAUTIFUL new HARDWARE!! Isn't it gorgeous.

For my piece I chose these gorgeous Copper Kettle Cup pulls and knobs to really class the piece up.
I was in love with the gorgeous finish and classy feel.

I think you will agree that they gave this piece the CLASS it deserved.
Such gorgeous rich copper against the gray and stain.

It turned out even better than I imagined all thanks to the gorgeous hardware.

Can you even believe its the same piece??
I hope you enjoyed this latest Fab Furniture Flippin Makeover.
Until next time Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
