Don't be afraid of Paint!

If you would like to change a room and you do not want to spend a lot of money...Paint it! It is amazing how paint will completely change something!! And the good thing about paint is... if you don't like it or it was the wrong color-- Paint it Again!

{I have painted just about everything}

Here is a picture of the lovely desk I found at an antique store. I loved the size and design of it...just not the color. I did not even know what it said..haha

{The blue tape is when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this cute desk}

Here is what paint can do to:

Tristan's New Desk:

Here is how I transformed the desk:

- decided on paint colors

- taped off the top of the desk for stripes

(you can get the blue tape from Home Depot or Lowe's and it comes in many different sizes)

-painted & aged the desk (sanded it with sand paper)

-There you go...a New Desk!

-- take a look at what I have painted in my home, parents, & sisters home --

{kitchen/bathroom cabinets, striped my bar, painted tables & bookshelves, fireplace mantle...}
