Roll Top Desk Maakeover

Hey Guys,

Remember this desk, the catch all of my crap in the entryway before it had it's makeover? Elizabeth has always wanted it and so I thought the time has come. She goes off to high school in January and she will need somewhere to work in private away from the little two.



Using the Canterbury Blue Chalk Paint, I painted it white and I bought these beautiful pumpkin pulls off ebay for less than $2 each. I found them in store for $12.50 so I was pretty pleased with the price.


Only problem was the 4 week wait for them to be shipped, however I just think they're so pretty.


See Pretty!!



DIY Delight or Disaster? Oh delight for sure, I have always loved the desk but I think she is just stunning in white. I love the Canterbury Blue paints, I did receive a pot of the white paint for free, but have since bought a few more, I just love them. So the first touches of green in her room and they're so pretty.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  2. Lovely transformation and so feminine! I remember my own first desk. I really thought I was "all that" having cubby holes to fill with "important" papers! Homework will take on a new importance for your daughter at her own private space! Very nicely done!

  10. I love that roll top desk too! It looks so pretty and fresh in white. Those pumpkin pulls are perfect for your high school princess! So was it really hard to get paint down in all of those crevices on the roll top?

  13. I wondered the same about the crevices Mel. I have a roll top and I'm afraid the cracks would fill with paint... you did a great job on yours. LOVE the knobs! So fun!
