Child Desk

I found this cute little desk while junkin' recently.  It is in sad shape...but I could see past the ugly to what it's potential could be!

I began this project by sanding the glossy finish off the top. 
I had a great old map of Texas and I knew I wanted to use it on the desk.

I wrapped both sides of the desk,

and all the drawers in the map image.

The top of the desk is painted with chalkboard paint.

I think I still want to "age" the map a little more and add a finishing coat of wax.
I've been working on finishing some of the projects that have been "in process" around here! 
I'm off to Buchanan's Antique and Collectible Market this weekend.
Linda and I are planning to have a FULL booth.of stuff, and Prissy Hippie is going to be our neighbor (they sell jewelry).  If you are in the Lewisville area, stop by and say "howdy"!!! 

Well...another table awaits some paint!

Till tomorrow,
