Kid’s Bedroom Desk Makeover

BEFORE: Unfortunately I do not have much for before photos, I really need to get better at that part. Here are a couple I found in my camera roll to give some sort of idea what it looked like before.


I just love what paint can do! This project was not too labor intensive and didn’t take too long to complete. I did give the wood a quick once over with a sanding block, I just did it by hand, nothing too crazy. And then I removed the drawers and handles. These handles aren’t necessarily my style but rather than replacing them at this point I just spray painted them black, so much better! I used my favorite go to paint color: Benjamin Moore White Dove and used a mini roller to paint as much as a could and a brush to get the edges. I ended up doing 3 coats but you could get away with less if you primed the wood before painting. I absolutely love the way it turned out and so happy to have one more project marked off the list!
