Now I KNOW I took some before pics, but I can't find them anywhere. (Kinda makes the whole reveal a little less dramatic, doesn't it?) If you can picture in your mind though--the little desk was painted white with a horrible stencil in gray on the top, then covered with a polyacrylic that turned yellow at some point in the last 10 years. Just sad.
Here are a few pics from mid-process. I used a wonderful, deep pink from Sherwin Williams:
If you really squint, you can still see some of the stenciling on the top of the desk...even after using a sander!
I used chalkboard paint on the top of the desk, and then added some fun polka dot fabric to line the inside. I also cut out some flowers with my Sizzix and added buttons for the centers. I was happy with how it turned out and apparently the sweet little gift recipient was very pleased with all the pink!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm hoping for a break in all this rain at some point today! UGH!
