" My neighborhood had a garage sale a few weekends ago and I found two perfect desks...but, they were already sold! I was so disappointed. So, I hopped on Craig's List and found this beauty:"
" Looking better all ready! I use Kilz no-odor spray primer. It is so easy to use and worth a little extra money. Just be sure to use light coats and shake the can a lot, or else it can get kind-of bumpy or have a sand-paper like texture." " Decisions, decisions...what color to paint. I thought a baby pink would look cute in C's room, but she was determined to have turquoise. I wasn't too sure about that until we came across a gallon of oops paint at Home Depot in turquoise. I love a bargain, so of course we bought it." The hardware got a makeover.

Behold the power of paint and a great color! Suzy is using this desk in her daughter's bedroom,which is currently undergoing a makeover of its own. The desk kind of acted as the starting point. She has since painted the walls a light aqua and added pops of pinks and yellow. Check out the above chair she also redid. Here it is the before... She has great plans for the bedroom and will be revealing it when its done. You can see some of her inspiration images here. Be sure to hop over to her blog to see more of her projects as well!
