a desk for me!

hello friends!

so, i've been on the hunt for an old desk to re-finish and put in the black/white striped room... something to paint on, instead of the kitchen table. so, after many trips to thrift stores and evaluating many shapes and sizes i present to you: my desk (before)!!!

and after a few coats of paint, and still not completely finished, but you get then general idea:
ta--da, the after picture!

now, time to do some paintings!


  1. I'm repainting my desk right now! I finally decided to go for it and paint it turquoise. After 1 coat it looks more like a reject from 1992 though! I'm hoping it gets better with a couple more coats. haha Your desk looks great, I like the legs. Where did you finally find it?

  2. Ooh! I love your desk! Good job!
