While I was visiting my family, my sister and I (ok, really just my sister) painted one of my Dad's many old desks YELLOW for her daugther's room. I didn't get to see the finished product in person but these pictures are to die for! There were 3 fabric panels on top of the desk under the glass top that she covered with the most adorable fabric.
Here is the BEFORE:
We took off all the casing around the bottom because one piece was missing on the front left there, only to find it when we took out all the drawers. Oh well, I like it better without them.
My sister going to town with the sander. I can't believe I have gone my whole life without one of those!
A little primer action. We used spray paint for the whole thing and since it was pretty potent and I am preggo, I had to stay back a bit. It was killing me to not get in on all the action.
And the adorable AFTER:
The handles are spray painted a plum purple which just makes it even more fun.
That is one lucky little 5 year old who gets this desk:)
