Well another day in the salt mines friends. It took all day to get this Steelcase desk and return done. I am sooo glad to get this project done because my garage is getting too full (I haven’t forgotten about you Frank and your table). Anyways, this desk had to be sanded to give the old paint tooth so the new paint would grab. After sanding the desk it was very important to get all the dust off of this piece so the paint could achieve as flawless as a finish that is possible. I then used a Valspar gloss medium grey. The real art of spray painting any piece is a clean surface and numerous light coats.
I started by refinishing the return first. The pictures below show you the prep and paint.
Next the desk had to be prepped and painted.
