cubbies, and painted by hand the rest of the desk. The hardware was taken off and spray painted with hammered iron (rust-o-leum)
and the results are seen below. I luckily had the piece that broke off the front leg, and missing hardware. I love this little desk, and used to have it in our home when our children were little. So it even meant a lot to me. My husband has graciously let me have it in my craft studio. Thankyou to my sweetheart, it was like getting a really special gift, and I enjoyed very much restoring it to a useful piece.
