On one of my Goodwill visits I found this desk that was badly beaten up. It 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! And for only $10. This is just what I needed to complete the desk for my daughter’s room.
So on my way to the check out I spotted these UGLY sconces – but they had the same shape as the chandelier that was already in the room. For $2 it was worth a shot to see if paint could magically transform them. I painted the desk white following the same procedure as the sewing table. Click here to check it out. I did add some new hardware that I had left over from a different project but actually considered painting the existing hardware pink. 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.
