Pretty Pink Desk

Isn't this the cutest little desk? That's what I'm calling it anyway. My husband bought it for me at a garage sale a while back. (Before we were married) I remember that he was so proud of himself. :) He couldn't wait to tell me what a bargain he had gotten! He only paid $5.00 for this sweet little thing. I know these pictures don't do it justice. I didn't have the best camera that day when these were taken. I decided to give it a fresh coat of paint....I thought pink would be a great choice. She looks so pretty in pink.

I decided not to paint the inside of the door because it has a very shiny surface and I wasn't sure if I could get the paint to stick too well and be able to use it without scratching it up.

I used the same knobs, just gave them a fresh coat of creamy white paint. I think it turned out so pretty.

Since we were married in July, we've been so busy! We decided to live in my little cottage and either sell his house or rent it out. He still has so much stuff in his house that we are trying to figure out what to do with! My cottage isn't very big and it's already full....so we are weeding out some things and planning on adding on a great room and expanding the kitchen. Right now we are changing the guest room/storage room into a room for Hailey, my 14 year old step-daughter. This little desk will be so cute in her room. We have so much to do and the busy time of year is on it's way.

I'll be sure to post pictures along the way of our many changes.

We love working on ''Our Cottage" together.

Have a blessed day!

Hi Lee Laurie!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my kitchen chairs..I just LOVE them! :) I'll show a pic of them around the table soon...I'm really waffling about what to do with the table, so I'll be asking opinions. I don't know whether to paint it or leave it wood. I kinda like the wood against the paint, but then wonder if I'd like the paint better. (then again it would get skinned up..ugh..can't decide)
Your little desk is so sweet..your hubby is a gem! :) Can't wait to see all the changes you're making in your home "together". :) You sound so incredibly happy!
Love ya

Hi Lee Laurie, thanks for coming by my blog and leaving such kind comments. I love pink too and would love to do this to a couple small tables. Your little table/stand turned out adorable.
