Lil PINK & White Desk Re-finished


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.

BEFORE
I forgot to take a pic before I started sanding-OOPS!
AFTER
(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)
It's a little more expensive but I'm a Lazy Crafter. I like stuff done quick & easy. So I painted the pink first, taped it off with blue tape then painted the white.
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!

TFL!

I seldom write remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Lil PINK & White Desk Re-finished".

And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look like a few of these responses look like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
