I found an awesome Mid Century Modern desk for only 10 bucks at a yard sale! I actually started transforming this desk a week or so after I got it, but have been unable to share the completed project until now because I just yesterday received the new hardware that I ordered for it over a month ago! (I ordered them from MyKnobs.com and they look great and were cheap, but their communication/customer service is a little lacking --overall I love them so it was worth the wait!).
For those of you who are new, or are like me and can't remember what you ate for lunch yesterday, heres what the desk looked like when I found it!
I absolutely loved the shape of the desk, especilaly the legs, but the finish was all scratched and really had seen better days.
So, I decided that I would try and freshen the desk up a bit with some paint! :) If the desk had been solid wood, I definitely would have tried to refinish it, but since this wasn't the case, I figured painting was the best way to go.
I absolutely love how it turned out and am so glad that I chose such a fun color!
Here's a few more picture of the desk in the living room. I decided to use it as an end table for our new couch. :)
How awesome does it look with the fun new paint color! I wanted something bright since most of the furniture in the living room is very neutral. And what about those new knobs? I think they were just what the desk needed to really make it shine! Roar!!
My living room transformation is almost complete!
