It's one of my 101 in 1001 to paint and re-do 5 pieces of furniture.
I found a cute little desk a few weeks ago at a Salvation Army and started my first project.
The desk was white, sticky and lopsided. At first I wanted to paint it orange...then maybe red...I finally settled on a dark plum purple!!
It took me all weekend, 4 coats of paint and probably more $$ than it was worth!
It now houses our office supplies, important papers and other random junk!
Add a few new handles....and viola!
