Quick Desk Remodel • 113th Penny Pinching Party

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Back in March 2010, I wrote a post about a desk I found for $10 and painted for my daughter's room:
In February 2011, we moved into a new house and my daughter wanted an all new theme and different colors. With $6 worth of sample paint in 2 different colors, I was able to transform her desk in about 20 minutes. I had a feeling she would want to change colors when I first painted the desk which is why I painted the desk white and the drawers pink.



A few years ago I did the same thing with a dresser for my son's nursery:
The dresser had been white with yellow drawers, so when I decorated the nursery I only had to paint the drawers and not the entire dresser.
After photo of dresser with black drawers (the drawers were yellow, but I don't have a photo).
