    Dance Sewing Desk DIY....

    Advertisements
    Ok so we bought a thrift store desk for $15 and are currently in the process of doing a sewing desk DIY....

    Heres what we have so far...



    Desk $15, we had sandpaper in the garage...
    used the sandpaper to scuff up the desk so the spray paint to stick...


    wiped off the desk with damp paper towels, to remove the dust from scuffing sprayed the desk with a grey primer 3 cans totaling $12
    let dry....








    bought a blue paint from the "oops" section at lowes, $1.50
    also bought a woodgraining tool $4.50 at lowes... (all lowes items were 10% off using Mil. I.D.)

    painted one heavy layer of the blue over the grey, and rocked the woodgraining tool down the paint in straight lines....




    da daaaa... this is what we have so far....





    i am thinking of doing another color on the underneath of the edges (where the tool will not go, and on the complete inside of the desk...where my legs will be)

    i am thinking hot pink? any other suggetions?


    What do yall think so far????

    we still have to cut out the place where the machine will drop down. the desk came with a slide out for the keyboard, which is PERFECT for the drop down
