Super Simple Farmhouse Desk With Cup Pulls

Friday, October 25, 2019

Today I have a short and sweet desk makeover for you!  This little guy turned out so cute and it was seriously such a simple makeover!

I rescued this abandoned little guy for super cheap.  It was pretty beat up on top, and the center drawer did not work at all.  So I grabbed my Country Chic Paint and started mixing some colors to make the most of my paint!


(The paint used in this post was so kindly send to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!)

I cleaned the piece really well, and sanded any rough bits.  I also patched the existing holes since I was going to be adding some pretty farmhouse cup pulls!


For this makeover I mixed my paint colors in the colors Hurricane, and Fancy Frock from Country Chic Paint for a pretty dusty grey blue color!

I decided to prime this piece because I just knew there was going to be bleed through!  It's better to prime first than realize you have bleed through and then have to redo all of the hard work you already did!

I gave this baby 3 coats of this paint mixture and let it dry completely before adding my wax!

Once it was dry, I added some light distressing around the edges for a farmhouse look and then I buffed my wax on to give it a silky smooth finish!

Next up was tackling the broken drawer!  I am not an expert on fixing drawers on furniture and I really have no idea how.  So, I came up with the idea of getting a piece of plywood from Home Depot and creating a shelf in that empty space!

I just got my piece cut to 20"x 20" to fit the space perfectly and stained it in my favorite Jacobean stain!

I sealed it up with my water based poly top coat, and wood glue it into place!

Ideally I would have liked to nail it in or screw it in as well but there was no way for my to get nails or screws into that small space.  But, wood glue should hold!

Now this desk has a cute little cubby to hold papers and such!

Lastly I added my oil rubbed bronze cup pulls I had left over from this previous project and I was done!

This was such a simple and fun project, but I am glad I could give this little desk many more years of life!!
