Pink Flowered School Desk for Abigail

Abigail likes pink.  She's a "girly girl" I've been told.  And she's going to be homeschooled along with her sister Rebecca (Click here to see her desk before and after) this year and needed a cute desk.  This was at a garage sale for $3.  The man running the sale saw me looking at it (have you ever noticed how men are so quick to just give their wife's junk away?!) and told me I could have it for a dollar before I had even uttered a word.  I took it.  As for the pink, black, and white scheme?  Here's how it turned out:

I'm finding Rustoleum's countertop paint to come in handy for SO much more than just countertops!!!  It was the perfect thing for this.  I don't think any other paint would have worked, actually.  It took three coats.  Then I just used acrylic craft paint for the flowers and put a coating of polyacrylic on top for protection and to add a shine.

Happy learning, Abigail!
