DecoArt – Desk Makeover

Have you ever wandered around your local thrift store, found something you just couldn’t pass up (even though you had nowhere to put it) and bring it home? My husband hates that I bring home projects we don’t have space for – but when you find an awesome deal on something you can’t turn your back on it! Things like this never last long! I’m so excited to be sitting down today to share this before/after I finished last month and finally got around to taking pictures of! While perusing our local Goodwill (in Arizona) we found this table for $5.99 and I couldn’t pass it up. It would be the perfect little entryway table for a few months until I finally decided to turn it into a LipSense Demo table. I had some fun paint from DecoArt I wanted to use and the design was wayyyy too easy to come up with!

So, using the hand sander – I sanded the table down to make sure my paint would adhere a bit easier. Sanding is the most boring part of a project, but I recommend it 100% – don’t skip this annoying, boring step!
