The Makeover of a Dumpster Desk

http://www.ThriftDiving.com - I found this old desk next to my dumpster, and knew immediately it had to be salvaged! I painted it with a beautiful ombre effect by mixing some white into my Annie Sloan Duck Egg Chalk Paint, to create the pretty drawers. Hard to believe this desk was FREE! It's where I do all of my blogging from every night :)
