Happy Memorial Day. A VERY special thank you to the men and women who serve our country. Thank you to my dad, who is the coolest army man I know. I remember both my grandfathers today who served and fought for our country. Praying for our troops and their families.
and back to some junk……..
Remember this $40.00 red desk I bought at a yard sale last weekend!?
I couldn’t wait to get some paint on it!
(no I haven’t figured out how to get the picture right side up)!!
I had this list of Robin’s Egg Blue paint colors on one of my pinterest boards. It came from Centsational Girl’s Blog, one of my favorites!
I went with number 2, interior wall paint in satin.
I also had a little bit of this paint left over that I used for the drawers and the chair. I little two tone action!!! Funny how it totally matched my drop cloth!
I didn’t want to use the old knobs and had a bunch left over from previous projects. Since I can’t throw anything away, I found just enough pulls that would go great with the desk’s new look.
I covered the seat with part of an old quilt top.
Remember my .50 cent owl!!! A little bit of cheap spray paint (Walmart .99) and bye bye pastels, hello magnificent white!! I was planning on selling her at my next art festival, but it reminds me of myself and my two little ones. Just don’t know if I can part with her now.
Same spray paint on these little birds!
I haven’t moved my round rubber mirror up just yet. The thing on top of the desk attaches to the wall to give you more workspace on the desk. Before I commit to attaching it to the wall, I have to decide if I really want to keep it or try to sell it. This space is right between our kitchen and living room so it would make a great little space for my kids to do their homework and keep up with all their papers. I am also planning on painting all my green walls grey, so I think it will look better once I do that. I don’t know! What do you think!?!?
Keep it or try to sell it!?!?
