My first finish for 2012, a Dresden plate table topper/mat. It measures 18" across. These are very easy and a little holiday scrap buster.

Desk Paint Job & Dresden Plate
I acquired this desk from my brother-in-law. He had it for many years. It used to be a roll-top desk but the wood just fell apart. I rescued it about six to seven years ago. It came to me in the dried up condition you see it. I used a half quart of Kilz on it and then rolled on the orange sherbet color. I think it still needs something. So today at WalMart I found a Min Wax stain in a tube. How great is that? I added a fancy knob in the front and then added two hooks on the side to hang bags, my tape measure I can never find, and other fun stuff. The bottom is now useful with the shelf - the basket holds my out of control selvage strips.
