Chalk Paint Desk Makeover

  • Leave a Review
  • I’m so excited to show you my chalk paint desk makeover today. I bought this desk over a year ago but I never got around to finishing the last little details to show all of you! It’s amazing what a little paint and love can do to an old piece of furniture! I am loving the coral/gold combo lately.

    This little piece is going in the naptime studio/craft room and is the perfect little spot to sew or work on little projects. For now it has been keeping my cute little blue typewriter out of storage. ;)

    Here’s what it looked like before. I found it thrifting for $35!

    Here’s how I painted it.

    1. First I removed the hardware and sanded down the edges a little.

    2. Then I mixed up some chalk paint. Recipe here. I used this color of paint:

    3. Next I painted 3 coats of paint, allowing it to dry a couple hours in between each coat.

    4. The last step was spray painting the hardware. I did 3 coats, allowing it to dry in between.

    I let the desk and hardware dry over night and then put it all back together the next day. I love the end result!

    I also thought it would be fun to add a bit of pizzaz to the drawers …so those got lined with contact paper for a fun touch.

    Here’s some other close up’s of the desk and collage wall behind it. I also found that cute little white chair while thrifting.
