Hi Everyone! I have one more day until I share my Holiday Home Tour and I was able to squeeze in a little furniture makeover.
We were given a desk a while back. We were going to use it for our son, but we have had lots of new developments with what’s going on with our boys, their rooms, and the layout and function of our home. I’ll share more on that later. As my grams says, to make a long story short, I needed to find a home for this little desk or give it away. Well, it has a new home in our living room. Now that I’ve floated the furniture, I have space behind the sofa for a little workspace. My office nook for the present.
Here’s the Before:
In its defense, it used to belong to a little girl. So the lavender is fitting. It was in good shape except for some dents on the top. I used the same painting method as this desk makeover. Basically, patch, sand, prime, and paint with a foam roller brush. You can get all the specifics in that post I just referenced.
The hardware is really the star of this makeover. I used these brass pulls from D Lawless Hardware.
I am always amazed at what a little paint and some new bling can do to an old piece of furniture!
Oh, and just FYI– these brass lion pulls are on sale for 75 cents!!!
