I found this piece at my favorite thrift store for $19.00. I scooped it up thinking it would make a great child or teen's desk. When I found the desk it was covered in carvings from some kid--I don't know if this was used in a school or a home...most likely a school with the sheer amount of carving to the desk.
I used A LOT of wood filler on this desk and did A LOT of sanding!
I had a small amount of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Duck Egg left over from another project and thought this would be a good neutral color for a boy or a girl since its a really light blue. Two coats and this is what I had...
I purchased these hand painted drawer pulls and replaced the old wooden knobs.
Not bad for $19.00. I'm selling this piece so hopefully some child/teenager gets a lot of use out of this!
I know this isn't a good "BEFORE" pic, but you get the idea!'
