“I chose this desk for all the storage since it was acting as our entire office,” explains Christy at Confessions of a Serial DIYer. “But it’s so large and being black, it was like a deep dark hole that was sucking the life out of that side of our living room.”
No one needs a black hole in their living room, so the obvious solution was for Christy to keep all the storage but ditch the dark finish. She made her own chalk paint and went to work. “I didn’t realize what a challenge this would be to paint with all those cubbies and angles,” she mentions, but kept going with the paint anyway. Along with the new color, Christy added pretty new knobs on the drawers and cupboards. The lighter, brighter desk is now a happy addition to her living room.
