My $27 Makeover

DSC_0086On one of my Goodwill visits I found this desk that was badly beaten up.  DSC_0087It had a

huge gouge on the top but I knew with some sanding and paint it was going to be a beauty. With dovetailed drawers and even a bottom cedar lined drawer who could pass up $15! On a different visit I found this!phone 468  And for only $10.  This is just what I needed to complete the desk for my daughter’s room.

That would have been cute too – oh well I can use them somewhere else.  The mirror and sconces were spray painted in a cream color to match the chandelier.

So obviously the chandelier was not part of the $27 but I did not spend a lot on it and it was my inspiration.  I found it online at Home Depot.

I just love the transformation!  Paint is a magical thing.12 002
