I’m just worried about the tape taking off the woods varnish, I hope everyone remembers to dull down the stickiness of the tape by simply sticking it on your hand or something!

kritter bitter says:

what could i do if i want to change white furniture to a light wood color?

T.G. Smith says:

Nice job ladies.

Happy Chappy says:

I like the style where the surface is left stained and the bottom part white. However I would never paint a piece of furniture that is as good as this desk is. I would only paint something that looked past it’s sell by date. Why did you not use a small roller to prevent brushstrokes. Didn’t like the new hardware but that is just personal taste. Thank you for the video

Maida Dutcher says:

My works too. Used woodprix handbooks and build it with no problems.

FTLTracks says:

I am currently doing this to my dressers, but with black paint, do I need a sealant?

Trina Nguyen says:

Would bottles of craft smart acrylic paint work if I’m painting small parts of furniture?

Hua Gong says:

How much primer and paint did you use for this desk?

Jelena Milutinovic says:

Rhiannon Angell says:

I bought instruction from woodprix and I build it very very cheap.

Teresa Roberts says:

I’m redoing my daughter room with a Paris fashion theme. I had no idea about the primer that eliminates sanding! I’m trying to redo an antique sewing machine from 1910 to use as a desk! She doesn’t know it yet but she’s getting her first sewing machine this Christmas!! (She’s 8! Almost 9 years old)

XIIVI VIXII says:

Does the paint wear off?
