Welcome back my Beauties!
Time for another Furniture Makeover!

Today I am going to show you how I transformed this beat up old Executive desk with just a little bit of paint!

But before I can start the transformation I have to take care of this pesky veneer that is falling off.
It was splintered and really fragile and I tried to glue it back down but no amount of glue was gonna keep it down the way it was flaking so it I had to change my plan.

Than plan now consisted of ripping off the veneer in this one part. 
I knew I was going to paint the drawers so it was just a matter of using a scraper and pulling off the rest of the veneer.
It was so bad that it barely took any work at all to pop it off.
Once I did I lightly sanded it and got it ready to paint.

I gave the drawers 2 coats of the gray and cleaned up the base of the desk which was in great condition.
I spray painted the old hardware with some copper spray paint
and this baby was ready to be put back together again.

As long as I have been doing this I still am always in awe of how just a little bit of paint can change the whole look of a piece.
