My sweet granddaughter, Rheagan, 7, loves art. She loves to draw, paint, color. She loves doing crafts. She had a small school type desk that I bought her for Christmas, but had outgrown it. In order to give her a nice desk for her crafting, homework, and art work, I took an old typing desk that I had bought for her Mom when she was a tween, and painted it for Rheagan.
Her Mom and I decided on a creamy yellow. So I bought the paint at Lowe's and got busy so I could have it ready for her for Christmas.
As usual, I failed to take a photo of the desk 'before', but imagine it with a light walnut veneer look.
I sanded it down to bare wood, put on two coats of primer, and several coats of paint. I don't have a photo, but the drawer is lined with pink polka dot paper. I wanted to put a pretty knob on the drawer, but this one could not be removed. It is somehow made to the drawer, no screw!
Here is the after.
I found this chair for her at a favorite store. It is so pretty, and the true color is a darker aqua than it appears in this photo.
I love the fabric on the seat, and the carved back and the front legs are so pretty.
Aren't the legs beautiful?
I got this beauty for less than $40.00!!
Rheagan loves her desk, and works at it a lot!!

I am so happy I could make this desk usable for Rheagan. I love it with the chair.
