Rainbow Stripe Desk Makeover

If you are following me on Insta, you might remember this little french provincial style desk we picked up for $20 bucks at a flea market. Aggie actually chose it so it was an easy sale. I shared a photo of her standing next to it proudly and soooo many people messaged me to say they had this same desk growing up in their bedroom. Not surprising since it was a big seller for years from Sears. It originally sold for $79!

Obviously I couldn't leave it as it was.






A couple of coats of chalk paint, a little refresh of the hardware and some rainbow stripes  for the top.  This was exactly the kind of makeover this piece needed to give it a updated look but didn't require much effort.  Aggie loves her new desk and it adds some great storage for all that paper that 6 year olds seem to create in their wake.

    That is adorable! Your daughter must feel extra-special. Do you have a before photo? I am guessing the glass knobs are new to the desk?

    1. Thanks! I do have a before photo but I have no idea how to link it. Luckily for me, its all over the web. It looked like this: https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/w7yVB52Wms4arQ-5kxx0TQ.jpg

      The glass knobs came from Amazon: https://amzn.to/2S1lpLT

    1. I got the rug a few years ago from RugsUSA but I don't think its being sold anymore. Here is the full source list: https://www.brooklynlimestone.com/2016/11/black-and-white-big-little-girls-room.html

    1. Here is the lamp: https://amzn.to/36CwaZc

      It operates both as a nightlight and a desk lamp (warm + cool options) plus its LED so it never gets hot.
