My daughter is a wonderful girl and but has very strong opinions about what she likes and what she doesn’t. I had redone her chair in this post and dared to ask if I could redo the desk as well. Let’s just say I didn’t stand a chance.
My girl loves color in her room so I was really surprised that she was content with that boring desk. But she was adamant. No painting! So you can imagine my surprise when one day out of the blue she said “yes mom, it’s time to paint it”. And this is how the Fabulous Ikea desk makeover with chalky finish paint came about.
Of course we were going to paint it blue!
But I knew that would not be enough. Instead I unearthed an old Marshall’s shopping bag. I love those bags, they are so full of character. See it on the floor next to the desk? There’s my inspiration.
Isn’t it “FABULOUS”?
To top it all off it was raining on and off. Moisture is just great for projects – Not!
This is such a sweet blue color. It will make the perfect addition to her colorful room.
And as my daughter would say “it is FABULOUS”!!
And I have to agree with her, this is such a great color it instantly brightened up our mood even on a rainy day.
I do believe there is nothing that Chalky Finish paint cannot tackle. This truly is a FABULOUS Ikea desk makeover!
And now I promise not to use the word Fabulous for the next six months!
Now fess up, what did you think of the mod podged shelf? Yay or Nay?
