Little Vintage Desk Gets a Funky Retro Makeover!

Hi Gorgeous Peeps!

Yep so I'm not so good with the whole regular blog posting thing... another long break between posts!  Rest assured I've finished several makeovers and been up to some fun furniture and thrifting capers!

Thought I'd pop in to share one of my latest furniture makeovers.  This little desk has been residing in our garage for quite some time now...  biding his time...  finally he caught my eye and received a funky lil retro makeover ;)

Before:
 
 
 
 
I started by painting him all white, it was at this point my boys chimed in with retorts of how totes boring all white was!  I was outnumbered so we needed to break open some colour! 
Green it 'twas....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well I think he has quite the personality now! 
 
What do you think, like the green?
 
 
 
Love n light

  7. I love the fun stripes! I actually painted a desk blue last week and thought it looked a little boring, so I added stripes too!
