This project has been ongoing for more months than I care to admit. Taking a plywood piece of furniture from black to white seemed to be an impossible task at times, but with many (many!) layers of primer, paint, poly and hard work, and I was finally able to accomplish it. You may remember what it looked like before - so dark and sad:
Now here it is all white! (sadly my photos aren't great...)
The reason the hard work was worth it is because this piece is truly a multi-tasker. Not only does it store all of my art supplies, inspiration folders, sewing machine, printer and other office supplies, but it actually serves as a computer desk as well.
I added a piece of foam core to the inside groove of each door to create a space to put up inspirational images, so now the desk feels much more welcoming.
