Extreme desk makeover…

Ok, so it’s not really that extreme, but with this being my first-ever attempt at making over a piece of furniture it feels pretty big! My post a few weeks ago detailed my plans to make my very own writing space as one of my baby steps toward writing. I wanted a desk that would make me smile just looking at it. However, I discovered that this was easier said than done. I didn’t want to spend the money on one I saw at a vintage type store…I didn’t want a cherry wood like all the other dark furniture in our bedroom… so I went on the hunt for a cheap desk that I could attempt to paint. I won’t relive the whole thing here, but after a loooooong, quite interesting drive (including splitting a herd of cows) I had my desk. 

Then, I spent the next week and a half doing some research (thanks, Pinterest), buying paint and other supplies, and telling myself that surely I couldn’t mess it up too badly. Here is the result… I love it.

So I wonder if having a fun desk helps you actually write? I suppose time will tell…
