Desk Makeover-Before & After!!

So I’ve been looking for a desk forEVER and I finally found one on craigslist for 30 bucks!

Granted it looked a lot better online then when we picked it up, I knew it had potential! I wanted a corner desk (room saver) and every one I saw was at least 500. No thanks! So with a little work I think it turned out just perfect!


Told you it was in BAD shape. My neighbor was like what in the world…haha!

First things first is to SANDDD! Electric sander…yes please!

Then I wiped it all down and gave it a good coat of primer and then 2 coats of black paint. I used my paint sprayer of course-such a time saver! For more details on painting check out my kitchen post. I was to lazy to sand in b/w each coat of paint, but I think it will be fine!
We took off all the hardware, and I gave them 2 coats of heirloom white spray paint.
OH YES and we tore off that nasty backing and put on some leftover bead board from the kitchen. Yes we glued pieces together. haha!

The after shot!! What do you think?

i LoVe bead board!

Now it’s time to move all my craft stuff out of the closet/all over the house and into the desk!
Hopefully I’ll have more pic’s this weekend!
