Flea Market Find

 I found this little student desk at a garage sale for $5. 
Hmmm.  What can I do with it!
 It was the perfect size for Victoria to have in her room.  I loved my desk growing up and I knew that she would love to have a place to write or draw. I knew right away that black was not the color that we wanted.  Kirk had his doubts that I could spray paint the top.  His first reaction to anything I do is usually negative until I prove to him that I know what I am doing.
(In fact, I did manage to get him to paint the top.) 
It took the primer perfectly and looks great pretty blue and white.
It looks like a brand new desk.
I also found a stool at the thrift store for $3.  Kirk cut a couple inches off the legs. I am planning on painting that the blue to match as soon as the breeze lightens.
It fits perfect in her room. Nice and cozy.
She has already started writing little notes at it.
The little shelf on the wall I also found at the thrift store a few months ago for $2. 
It is amazing how paint can liven up anything.
I love to repurpose old stuff and make it new.
