Craft Desk

I got this desk a few weeks back at the thrift store. It is huge. 6 feet long. I am in love with it. My plan is to put it in my craft room in the new house.

The paint was a yucky yellow and it was really dirty. So, Johnsie and I wiped her down and sanded her a little.

Then it was time for primer. I let Johnsie help paint because first, he really wanted to help and second, because this is just going in my craft room and will eventually be covered in paint and glue anyway.

He was having so much fun.

All done. Things got a little messy so there weren't any in between pics.

I mod podged some paper on to the drawers.

Cute. I haven't done the other drawers yet. I am not sure if I am going to. I don't want it too busy.

How neat. You are the 2nd lady I have visited today that has used Mod Podge and I must now get some.

Very classy and cute! You did a good job!

You could use the same papers on the other side, then it'll look balanced. I'd be worried about it feeling off if the other side wasn't done.

I tend to agree with Ticia, I think it would look great with the other drawers decorated too, to balance it out! Love how you turned it into such a beautiful piece!
