Paint Makes Ugly Things Pretty

FINALLY!  I'm finally writing you from the desk in my office.  That's right my desk is done! I still plan to get a piece of glass to set on top of it but all of the painting is done.  Ready for the before and after?

Here is the hideous craigslist posting picture of the desk.

It was dirrrty, beat up.  It had white out all over it as you can see.
So I cleaned it, sanded it, primed it and painted it white.  And I spray painted the handles hammered black.  And here's the desk now!

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.  I also love the framed pic I put above it.  Its from pics we got done at Penneys a couple weeks ago and the frame and matte I got at Hobby Lobby yesterday.

Now I have my bookshelves to put up and the office will be as done as it's going to get right now.  Until I pick out artwork, a rug, a new computer chair and other accessories. 


  1. Great job! Big improvement on the desk - so cute and I love the wall color too! I look forward to seeing more! :)

  2. I love it!! The green matting and picture are perfect above it! Great job!!

  3. Beautiful work! It really pops against that blue wall!

  4. our desk in the guest room looks very similar! but, it's in great condition... it was michael's grandparents... so i think i would be in trouble if i painted it. the white looks so good!
