My mom just recently gave me this desk that her father gave her... and now I'm giving it to my son, Chase. From what I understand, my grandpa Brough was quite the tinkerer... I think he and Chase would really hit it off. Chase is going to love having a place to store all his little tools and projects, and place to work on them too.
This is what the desk used to look like... kind of. I had already started sanding the drawers when I thought to take a photo. It was very... orange. Which is fine, but not my style.
This is more my style...
The bottom is painted in ASCP Graphite with a dark wax finish. The top was sanded down and finished with dark walnut and dark wax. The pulls were sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze, and I think the black on black effect is studly. :)
I'm liking it... a LOT. And I'm pleased to say, so is Chase. I'm hoping Grandpa would feel the same.
