A Date With Desk-iny!

Hi everyone! I want to share a cute little desk I picked up for just $4.99 at GW not too long ago for my guest room.  Sadly, I do not have any before pics but it was your typical GW sorta-thing, dark stain 1960's era desk.  It is solid wood and dove-tailed, so it is very sturdy and good quality.

I spray painted it out in Rustoleum 2X Ultra Strawflower, distressed it, glazed over with walnut, and finished with a top dressing of wax.

*Apparently Parker was napping and not too keen on the photo shoot idea*

Isn't it a sweetheart?  It fits in perfectly for our guest room corner.  I needed something that could function as a night stand and as a sewing table/craft center.  Perfect! For about $5.00 in paint and the cost of the desk, this nifty little addition was only about $9.99!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you happiness,

  7. That's a great price for a desk at GW, at our GW it would have been priced much higher! I love the color of spraypaint you used and Parker is a cutie!
