We bought this little beauty on Craigslist last summer.

Painted it and put it in our youngest daughter's room.

I think she is going to be like me...likes to change things often. Ha!

We are in the process of "shopping Pinterest" to get idea's of what to do to her room.  We know that this little desk is going to go, so it needs a little update and off to the Depot it'll go!

Here's what we did to it...
A new coat of RED and a little typography on top.

 Painted the original hardware.
And here it is all finished.

Pin It
We're pretty pleased with how it turned out.  What do you think?
