Bailee's desk

Here's the second "furniture re-finishing" project I've completed. Inspired by All Things Thrifty.

Bailee has a TV tray down in her room that she likes to use as a desk, but TV trays are flimsy and there's not much surface area to work with! I thought it would be fun for each of the girls to have their own desk, so I started shopping on KSL. I found this one for $20. Here's a shot of it, after I had sanded the top and sides.

I don't think it's necessary to sand it all the way down to the raw wood, just rough it up a little so the paint sticks better.

I used Krylon spray paint again. Bailee got to choose the color all by herself! She chose Blue Ocean Breeze.
Here it is before the glaze....

And then after the glaze. I used some that my SIL gave me, which was a Ralph Lauren faux glaze w/ black silk.

I'm still working on her dresser. I hope to get all of these projects done within the next few weeks. It's been so cold outside lately that I can't get the painting done. (I do it in the garage). Now that we have a warmer week coming up I can hopefully get a bunch of them painted. :)

Very cute desk, good job! I'm dying sitting here and not even being able to get my baby room ready... I'll have to live vicariously through your paint projects for now!
