Friday Freebie...and a FAIL!

Do you ever have a project that you work on FOR DAYS, only to have it not turn out? That is what happened with my original project for today. FAIL! So I will be posting about a project I did a couple years ago~~ it wasn't free, but very inexpensive~~to my delight!

I found an old desk, similar to this at a yard sale, I offered $5.00 and the woman was happy to get rid of it.



I used my trusty sander, and scuffed up the finish a bit.



After a coat of primer, and three cans of this...



I ended up with this! It resides in my living/dining room, and I get comments about it all the time from visitors.


I love the little details and the pretty feet.





What do you think? What projects have you started and FAILED? Happy Weekend!
