We decided to finally sass it up a bit, and I have to say, it is 100% better than what it was with only a little bit of paint, stencils, and a angle grinder.
This intructable is def an easy, and it was def cheap. I ended up spending less than $20 for the table and fixing it up. I only had to buy red spray paint and stencils because I had leftover house paint and polyurethane.
What you will need:
Two paint colors
Plastic or paper to mask
Tools to take desk apart and sander
Step 1: Step 1: Breaking it down
Step 2: Step Two: Prep and Paint
After we sanded and wiped it down, we started to paint it. We used interior house paint we had and we put about 3 coats on. Knowing this was a kid's desk, we wanted it thick.
