I love Craigslist.
It's pretty much my go to spot whenever we need to buy or sell something.
I love the selection you can find on there and well...
I'm definitely a sucker for a good deal.
A couple months ago I scored a beautiful roll top desk for $20.
Try finding that deal in a store.
The moment I laid eyes on it I knew it was destined for greatness.
Aqua greatness that is.
Isn't it pretty?
I wish I would have remembered to take a picture of it before we had taken it apart to be painted but as you can kind of see it started off a darker wood color.
To get it ready for it's paint job
I lightly sanded the entire desk and drawers with this sand sponge
as well as some regular sand paper.
It was super easy and didn't take long at all.
Then, after I got all of the sawdust off the desk,
came the fun part!
And after 3 light coats of aqua goodness,
and 6 or so cans of spray paint later
our desk was finished!
I love how it turned out!
The color is so bright and cheery.
When I see it I get happy.
Oh and after I was finished painting I went back with the sandpaper and lightly sanded off a tad of the paint on the corners and edges to distress it a bit.
I figured it would be distressed soon enough whether I liked it or not so I might as well make it look intentional.
Thanks for stopping by!
And come back next week to see another spray painting project I've been working on.
