{ Colorfully Painted Desk }

I use Miss Mustard Seeds milk paint. It's almost like a sampler of her fabu colors. Except the purple. I mixed that myself with a combination of milk paint colors.

I left the top wood. It's sanded smooth with a poly finish. I like that it shows years of wear and love.


  1. Love this idea! I have this exact desk sitting in the attic at the cottage and was thinking that it was going to end up in a garage sale at some point. I've got to show this to my daughters ... they may like it once it has a makeover!

  2. Looks great!
    I was wondering about that purple... it gives it eye-catching character!
