Is it okay to paint sentimental pieces? YES, it is!! Old Desk Makeover with Chalk Paint
I am the lucky recipient of an old - perhaps even antique - desk from my in-laws. The finish was old and battered and not my style. I hesitated for a long time but then I bit the bullet and gave her a makeover. Removing the top veneer first and then painting her with Chalk Paint.
I think she is mightily improved. Do you agree?
