Desk Rehab

Another garage sale find... this one was $20.  
My 10 year old has been begging for a desk and I thought we could make this one work just perfectly!  

She wanted to paint the desk so I let her do the entire first coat of paint and she did an amazing job!

We picked out some hardware at Hobby Lobby to add a little bit of her personality.

And I couldn't resist giving you the reality picture of what the desk looked like a couple of days after I took the pictures for the post!  She's definitely made it her own!
FYI:  I used ASCP Pure White paint on this desk.

Come and par-tay with me at these awesome LINK PARTIES...

  1. VERY cute, Nicole!! You are the queen of painting furniture! I have a bunch of pieces sitting around waiting to be painted, but can't seem to find the motivation to do it! How awesome that you let her paint some too. I never seem to have the patience to attempt that with K. ;-)

  2. What a cute desk...and all the more special because your daughter helped to redo it! A couple of years ago my then 10 year-old son painted (with my assistance) a bed and desk for his room. It may not have been perfect, but it was something that he was really proud of. :-)
