My Lil E, LOVES herself some PINK! Any time she gets a choice of which color she wants for an item if it comes in pink-she always choosed pink. Well we've been hunting for a desk for her room for a while now. At first I was thinking of a old skool class room desk like this, I'd paint it pink ofcourse. Then I thought that was to small so I went looking online and found this desk at walmart and thought it wouuld be PERFECT! Well I put off ordering it for whatever reason. The Hubbs was off one Friday and happened upon a yard sale where he found the cutest little desk for $5! I couldn't believe it-either.
So here are the before and afters.
(gotta get two plugs for those 2 holes there)
All I did was sand it down so that there was no shine. This was impossible on the back of the hutch section so I went to my local Home Depot Store and instead of spray paint. I bought a 1 quart of the pink in a semi-gloss and 1 gallon of rhe white paint in a satin WITH primer in it! **genius**
(thought it was clever to paint the inside of the drawers pink)
I also changed out the knobs it had long fat wooden ones I thouht these little round ones were cuter. This was my first time re painting a large piece of furniture and now I'm hooked...next on the list...the rest of the girls' room furniture, dinning set, and lawn chairs!
Total desk redo cost around $50!
