A Vintage Student Desk that went all glam

I've said it before and I'll say it again (at the risk of sounding a little cuckoo) sometimes these furniture pieces speak to me. Some speak louder than others like this vintage student desk. The plan going in was to paint the desk a masculine blue for a boy's room and the desktop and drawer pulls with black chalkboard paint.

I had the paint cans ready and a vision embedded in my head and then this happened...

Vintage Student Desk Fit For A Princess

Evidently, this little desk wanted to be soft and feminine with a dose of glam. Perhaps because someone made a previous attempt at painting her red and then abandoned her half way through.

Vintage Student Desk Before Makeover

Before I get into the details of this student desk makeover, today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day, one of my favorite days of the month.

Six talented and creative bloggers come together to breathe new life into six furniture pieces that had seen better days. You will find links to my friend's furniture makeovers at the bottom of this post.

In case you missed last months challenge, I transformed an Antique Wash Stand and turned it into a coffee station for our dining room.

Talk Of The Town Party #86

It's week #2 for me as co-host of this awesome party and I can't wait to see what you share with us. Are you like me and hanging onto every second left of Summer or have you already embraced Fall? Judging by the links from last week's party, many of you have. Here kids don't go back to school until after the labor day weekend and so we're still in full-blown Summer mode.
