I’m probably no different than most of you in that I love changing the décor in my home. And what I like even more is changing it without having to spend a lot. The furniture we have often presents more potential than we think. For example, a night stand can be made into a mini-range for your little ones, or, as I’ll show you in this post, a simple desk can become a make-up table that you could customize to suit your teenager’s or your own personal taste.
This particular project doesn’t call for any required equipment – you can use what you have on hand! Ribbons, appliqués, paint, stencils, sequins, little storage boxes, etc.
1. You can start by changing the ambiance (for example, the wall colors) of the room where the desk is. This will give it a whole new look.
2. Next, you could add appliqués, ribbons or paint to some areas of your desk. In this case, I chose to place a ribbon on the hutch. I also painted a zigzag pattern on the drawer front, using acrylic paint and a stencil (see our blog post on how to paint laminated furniture).
