Here's my first project in the new house and my first furniture project. I found this desk at a garage sale for 7 dollars. It was slightly rickety and the paint was dirtily and chipped. Mr. Jiggs and I stripped a bunch of paint off, shored it up so it was sturdier, painted it black, and added new knobs.
Here's how it looks now. It's working very nicely for my sewing table. And I love that the middle drawer is the perfect size for my patterns!
