Sicily Writing Desk

A guest room makeover has become our latest project, and what better way to start it off than with this beautiful writing desk inspired by Pottery Barn. Jamie has been on the lookout for the perfect desk to build for our guestroom. She came across this Sicily console table from Pottery Barn and thought it would be great made into a desk. So there you have it, an $800 Pottery Barn console table turned into one awesome $75 desk! Beat that!

Finishing

Jamie started out with a coat of Wheat wood stain from Rustoleum. After letting that sit overnight she followed it with a coat of the new Mineral Green wood stain from Rustoleum. Then she finished it off with three coats of polyurethane in a matte finish.
