When my wife was pregnant we drove several hours to meet my father-in-law halfway between our homes in order to get an old antique secretary desk. The plan was to sand and repaint it to go in our foyer. We brought it home and then, well, life happened. To the tune of a pregnant wife, then the birth of our baby girl, who is now a toddler. But all that being said there it was in the garage taking up space.
A couple of weeks ago I started back on the project. It was time, so I removed the hardware, then sanded it down one weekend and got a coat or two of primer on it.
Once done with that, I started to put multiple coats of paint on it. I used spray paint with a light sanding between coats. Had some rainy weekends and a trip out of town, but today I was able to finish it up.
It is now where it was intended to go… only some 3 years later. I am feeling pretty good and productive today and that’s a nice feeling.
