So, I have been working hard all day to finish my desk project. It was fun. Here is what I did:

1. Removed all hardware, mirror and the beat up back board.

2. Scrubbed with disinfectant cleaner.

3. Waxed with Johnson Paste Wax

4. Washed hardware in dishwashing detergent with bleach.

5. Replaced door glass with a pretty paisley fabric and lined it inside with pink ribbon.

6. Recut and replaced the back board and one drawer bottom.

7. Giggled with satisfaction.

Got this desk thing at the Red Cross. It is going to be one of my more work intensive projects, and I plan on working on it while doing my regular blog stuff. I cannot figure out what it is exactly. It looks like it could have held a record player? But what’s up with the vanity mirror? It came with some cool, but cracked, green glass in the doors and I am brainstorming on what to replace them with.

Come on with the suggestions people!
