Thrift Store Desk Makeover

I love this desk.  My hubby has an entire office and I wanted a little space to myself in our bedroom so I patiently searched for a small desk for a couple of months and this is what I found.  $30 for the desk, paint that I already had and $35 in drawer pulls.  I would say for $65 total, I am very happy with my purchase!

And after...

  2. Gorgeous! I love the shape and the finish. I almost scored a very similar one on kijiji. The one that got away....

  3. I have a desk just like this. I'm partial to painting everything cream, so I haven't touch the desk yet, hoping I'd convince myself to paint it something different but your desk is so lovely, I want to go right ahead and just paint it a beautiful white or cream afterall! Thanks for sharing.
