Fancy X Desk and farm picture frames

Submitted by Missysue on Wed, 02/20/2013 - 20:13

The table is the fancy x desk. This was my very first wood project. My first time using power tools and painting furniture. The picture frames are from Ana Whites book, The Handbuilt Home. They were my second project. This is located in the back of my frontroom. I love the color. Thanks Ana!

P.S. this was my first project, so I took my time.

What a fantastic job! (the color is great too) I am choosing this plan as my first project as well. I have built small things before and I am familiar with how to use saws and such, but this is a build that I have been working up the confidence to tackle, lol. Wish me luck, cause this is the weekend I will be starting it :)
Again, you did a great job!

By the way, I agree with your last statement about asking the paint associate at your Home Depot for advice on which paint or technique to use, I am an associate at The Home Depot and the folks we have in our paint department are fabulous!! they are very knowledgeable and most have years of experience and a background in the painting trade.
