A Sweet Girly Desk


This sweet little desk came from an estate sale.




Maybe it was the pink on the back, but I knew she was meant to be girly.




So I went with classic white for a Shabby Chic look.




I wanted to keep the white nice and bright on this one, so I went with just a light distressing and no glazing.




But she definitely needed pretty glass knobs.






Perfect spot for a laptop in a teen girl's room, don't you think?





And that's exactly where this sweet desk ended up!




This room belongs to Liz. I love the bright, happy colors! And the chair was a tag sale find that Liz recovered herself in a fresh black, white and just a touch of pink fabric. So pretty! Liz lives in my neighborhood. Maybe I need to recruit her to join Elizabeth & Co.!





Thanks for sharing your room with us Liz!





And be sure to enter our thank you giveaway for reaching 200 followers over the holidays!

I have a very 1960's maple desk that was part of a boy's room set. I have been tinkering with the idea of painting it white and changing the knobs...now I know I will for sure!

Cindy Swanson said...

I love it! I have a little desk like this as well...pretty much doing nothing in my basement. I've never done much furniture-painting myself, but this makes me want to try!
