Painted White Desk

Karen’s latest edition of “Trashy Tuesday” over at Redoux features the transformation of this heavy duty desk that had been left for dead outside of a warehouse.

After a major cleaning and sanding, Karen primed and painted the piece with two coats
of CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White and finished it with wax. It now holds her family’s computer and has created an entire new space in their home. Karen says, “I love that it was totally free. It just needed a good home and some TLC.”

  1. Thank you so much for the feature Beckie! Thank you for mentioning my “Trashy Tuesday” series too. My favorite day of the week!

  2. Ohhh….this makes me want to buy an old desk I just saw, it turned out so fantastic

  3. These big ol desks get cast away all the time for the sheer weight they are, but just look how great they turn out with some new vision.
