This poor old desk is one I've been thinking should've been retired for a good long time, however, other than being scratched up and ugly, it is super sturdy. And the perfect size for small spaces. Plus, I really hate sending stuff like this to the landfill. So I decided to keep it and give it a makeover.
|Lots of scratches and wear|
|It's a little rough|
After disassembling the top, slide out keyboard tray and bottom shelf I wiped it all down with a damp cloth and it was pretty much ready to paint. Outside on a tarp I gave each of these pieces a good coat of Rustoleum spray paint in the color Sweet Pea that I purchased at Wal-Mart for $6.48. Then I gave it another one.
Once it was dry all I had to do was put it all back together again and it was ready to go. It turned out great and is going to be perfect for what I plan to use it for. And I sure can't beat the price.
Pink! Oh yeah baby, because I've got plans for this piece of furniture. But, you're going to have to wait for my next post to find out just exactly what that is. Sorry peeps. I promise it will be worth the wait.
