This blog is formerly Meet Makeup
Hey! Remember my haul from last November? I bought purple spray paint and a paint primer from Wal-Mart to re-do an old 80's looking desk I had. The problem is that I am always having to do my makeup in the bathroom. Which means I was storing it in there. When you store makeup in the bathroom, it goes bad quicker due to the moisture the shower makes. Not a good deal. Luckily I had this old desk to give it a face lift!
Disclaimer: I would be lying if I said I did most of the desk myself. Fact is, my boyfriend did most of the desk. He did most of the sanding and I did all of the painting. We didn't sand the whole thing though. And the side I didn't sand actually looks exactly the same as the side's
Another thing I wanted to mention is that I had to go back to the store and purchase another can of spray paint. The desk isn't too big so if your going to spray paint a piece of furniture, you will probably need 2 cans. The paint I used is called Gumdrop and it is by Krylon. It was only around $5
Now that the desk is all done, I store my makeup in/on it. However, I still need to do my makeup in the bathroom due to the lighting. I really need to get some good lighting once and for all. I also need to up-grade my storage too as I ran outta room. So, once everything is fully done, I will update the blog about it.
All and all, I am extremely happy with my results. For one thing, nobody (as far as I know) has this exact same desk as I do. For another thing, I spent $15 in all! ($5 each for the Gumdrop paint, $5 for the primer, & we had the sand paper on hand!) How cool is that?
So that is that! I can't wait until the whole station is actually done so I can show it to everyone!
QOTD: Have you guys ever re-did a piece of furniture?
