Upcycle: Desk

desk makeover

 

Last weekend in a vain attempt to finish my office makeoverI chalk painted my desk.  It’s actually an Ikea table and as old as the hills.  Wal bought the table around 15 yrs ago when he bought his house but it was too big for the kitchen. It sat forgotten and unloved in his parents garage unassembled and still in it’s original box.  Once we moved to our 1930’s semi his parents tooks that as a sign to get rid of all the crap stuff he  had stored there.  In this case it really wasn’t crap and I thought it would make the perfect desk!

I’m very happy with how it turned out! Now to finish my map wall…

      it takes up to 30 days to fully harden but you can use the item almost immediately if you’re careful.
