Hurray for pinterest right?
I bought this thrifted desk for a decent price ($15? It was awhile ago) and have been waiting for the right time to paint it.
The time finally came! I wanted to do a fun bright blue but decided that maybe next year I won't be so crazy about the blue color.
Then we found these super cool knobs from home depot with the exact blue I love!
I settled on white it makes the room more open and is easier on my already crazy brain.

I love how it turned out.
I bought all the paint from Lowes.
The guys there mixing paint knew what I was trying to do and mixed up my gray to the exact color I wanted. In fact I used the recipe right off the Lowes website for the chalk paint.
I bought a book at the goodwill to use as a mousepad so not to scratch the paint.
I read many reviews of newbies saying chalk paint was really hard and they had problems of clumping but I had ZERO problems and enjoyed the project. I did hand sand a few spots after painting to make sure it was smooth. It was my first time chalk painting and now I want to paint everything.
oh and if you notice I have a piece of hardware missing. Apparently older furniture uses sizes that are not found just anywhere. I can't find any hardware for under $15 same amount as I paid for the whole desk... so I am saving up for one since I spent all my money on paint and the other knobs.
what do you think?
