Spray Painted Desk!




This desk used to be in our Master bed room (pre kids) as a make-up table. It was very white, very plain and just Blah! And after sitting in our attic for several years it was ready for the Curb! Until I re-purposed it for my daughter's bed room as a fun and colorful desk!


Wow...what a difference a little color makes, or in this case a whole lotta color! And all it took was simple spray paint!  Yup, a can of spray paint can renew an old piece like nothin' else!  

*Update - Here's how this desk looks now after we painted A's room Aquaduct from Sherwin Williams.  Notice the desk is still going strong and the paint hasn't chipped at all. 



Ahhh, gotta love Rustoleum spray paint!

  4. So cute! And whenshe's done with it, you can repaint/repurpose it again!
    Oh, how I wish we had an Ikea near us... I had heard a few years ago someone saying there was one in CHicago- but it's not listed on their website... :( I have never been to one, but I love their catalogs!

  13. I love the green! This must be a popular color combo for a girls room. I spray painted my daughters desk chair green and she wants purple walls (holding out for mind changes on that one).
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. I am always amazed at the power of spray paint! I love what you've done with the desk ... I'm shopping for one for my kids right now, but I feel like I should look on CraigsList and then just buy some spray paint!
