“A little more than a month ago my mom called me to let me know she had found a small desk on the side of the road, and snagged it for me,” says Bekah at Country Mouse Tales. “The first time I saw the desk it was sitting in her backyard, and I didn’t immediately have high hopes.”
Despite it’s rough shape, Bekah took the desk home and decided to see what she could do with it–without investing much. She made a few repairs and sanded away years of scratches and stains from the desktop before staining it. Bekah painted the rest of the desk with a sample jar of Valspar’s “Perfect Storm”. To help the little hands at her house be better able to open the desk drawers, she added some simple rope handles. The result of her low-budget efforts is an adorable desk for the playroom that looks like it’s worth much more than Bekah’s small investment.
