little desk makeover

this started out as this $20 table I bought from a garage sale and was using as a bedside table in Thomas' room
painting inside this week, my usual garage space is too hot!  I used the same paint / primer I used on my kitchen cabinets



I'm happy with the transformation and the color is the perfect match for Kate's reading chair.
and the after.  I also painted this IKEA chair, which was first black, then pink, and now cream.
I made these fun new pillow covers using fabric Kate picked out from Hobby Lobby

soooo pretty! I'm so scared to paint anything! I'm curious about that red bed! Did you paint that too? You did an amazing job!

Jennifer, I couldn't find your e-mail address to reply to, but yes I painted that red bed too. I used spray paint for that.
I have a blog post on it here:
