Woohoo! A pretty little DIY is about to grace your screen. Here’s the story:
My parents purchased this desk second-hand for my older brother during college. Since then I’ve used it a time or two, and last spring I once again dragged it out of their garage for use in our home office. I knew immediately I wanted to paint it. Looking back, I don’t think it was the green color I hated so much as the contrasting drawers. Regardless, after seeing this photo I was hooked on the idea of a salmon pink desk. When Dave was out of town last weekend, I finally got around to tackling this project. My pink is more of a bright coral than the original subdued salmon I fell for. I wanted to leave the top natural, and, worried there wouldn’t be enough contrast, I opted to brighten it up a bit. Since I already had paint brushes, sand paper and primer on hand, I completed this project for under $10. The two drawer pulls and two sample size paint containers came in at $9.86.
So here she is, my lovely coral desk. It’s probably irrational how much joy she brings me.
