If you’ve been hanging out here on The Mellow Beat for a smidge, you know I’ve been sewing. I was lucky enough to be gifted my mums original serger and I splurged with a gift card to pick up my first sewing machine. >
…and it goes! Last post I mentioned we celebrated my darling niece’s 1st birthday. It was a fabulous day at the farm and there were so many people to enjoy the day with. The hubby and I took oodles of photos (see below!) and we all ate cake (among other things).
Hey Friends, just popping in for a quick update on our Coffee Bar!
I managed to get another coat of white paint on the parts of the desk that needed it
The hubby added 3 more screws to really sturdy it up since shrinking the width to fit our space
He also reattached the desk top and filled in the seam with wood filler
I sanded the desk top down to remove the previous finish and added another layer of wood filler to the seam and a couple other spots
Another quick sanding and dusting off and it was ready for stain!
Stain applied (a little harder than I thought, a few brush strokes are visible)
Letting it dry overnight and then I just have to get a piece of white MDF backboard to create a little shelf where one of the old drawers went (the top right drawer) and spray paint the hardware matte black. Once that’s all done, I can attach the hardware and take the desk upstairs!
I also need to spray the shelf brackets I got with the matte black spray paint. They are glossy black and I’d really like it all to match. Then I can cut my shelf to size, stain that and install it. Boom, coffee bar DIY is nearly complete!
