My sister passed along this secretary desk to us a couple of years ago. I had planned to do something to it since then, but having a toddler tends to shift my priorities from “furniture fancifying” to “picking up goldfish crackers from between the couch cushions”. So after looking up how to paint laminate furniture, I picked up some samples from Home Depot and went to town. The knobs are from Hobby Lobby, the primer is Killz original, the paint is semi gloss interior paint (Behr’s Gentle Rain), and the sealant is Polycrilic.

What have you been up to, interwebs?

About mombieconfessions

I am a sarcastic mom, tried and true INTJ, my DISC profile has a high D and C with low I and S, and I'm a quirky geek (love me some Star Wars, BSG, Firefly, Dr, Who and comic books!). When I grow up I want to be an Amazon warrior with super powers and an awesome costume. Music and literature are passions, cooking and baking are hobbies, and writing a blog (such as this one) is both a cathartic release and documentation of the growth of my family and myself.
