Glue gun How I modernized my antique writing desk 1.
First, I painted the entire desk with easy use semi-gloss black paint I had picked up at Walmart. I wanted a light wooden top to modernize the look, and brighten the space. Replacing the desktop would have the added benefit of minimizing some the antique-y curves of the original desk.
The color on the table top was good, but the white edging was NOT. So I took out my paint again and painted the edges black.
I then removed the old desktop, and the whole project suddenly came together. But applying iron-on wood veneer trim, and then painting THAT might be easier and less costly than priming and prepping the laminate to paint.
When trying to decide exactly how to position the desktop before attaching it, I found that I really liked being able to slide it forward and back. There are about 4. I attached 8 FIXA cable clips to the underside of the desk using a glue gun to function as stoppers to prevent the desktop from sliding too far in either direction.
I positioned these flush against the right and left sides of the desk to prevent it from sliding in those directions, but the desk top easily slides forward and back into perfect position.
When doing this, it was important to make sure the desk top was VERY straight when pulled or pushed in either direction before attaching the stoppers, as this will determine how straight the desktop lays.
In the future, it may be even better to make an underframe to allow this function to be even more secure, but this is the easiest, cheapest option for now. So… I decided to remove the drawer sadly, because I loved the drawer pull.
Without I drawer, I now had no place to stash any desk items Or my laptop, which is less used than my tablet.
I put a wire shelf on the hidden shelf to function as hidden cord management I attached a power strip under the deskand still allow the laptop to slide in easily beneath that.
