So....this is the desk that daughter number 3 has been using for the past two years. We recently (2 months ago) deep cleaned her room and I decided to take the leftover wall paint from daughter #2's new bedroom makeover and liven up this lovely little desk.
It really was this ugly before. I sanded it very lightly, applied kilz and then this lovely Robin's egg blue.
In this shot I was not quite finished with the paint on varnish but doesn't it look just lovely.
She is happy to have it back in her room and holding her 4700 pencils, papers, and important items.
