Old School Desk Refurb


This is an old desk my sister has had for years. She recently moved into a new place so I transformed her lil desk into something other than a dust collector. The lid flips up and she has trays for her jewelry. Drawers hold bangles, etc. Homemade chalk paint with Valspar samples Desert Fortress & Crocodile Smile and left over brown I had from my kitchen redo. New knobs & stenciled top.

    I have one of these desks and have been wondering what to do with it for many years, now I know. Mine also has a matching chair.
