Itty Bitty Desk Redo <3 Part One

14 Apr

Wow what a crazy Saturday it has been for me! One of the things I have been doing in order to improve myself is working out at the gym twice a week. Now that I’ve successfully done the schedule for a little less than a month now I am starting to think about also working out on Saturday mornings – but in a different way. The gym I go to offers free classes and I’m thinking about doing a Zumba-like class. Today I stopped by the gym to check it out to see if it would be something I’d like and I also gave my Dad a tour. This gym is starting to seriously become a family affair ๐Ÿ˜‰

After the gym today I headed to Home Depot with my dad to pick up a few things and start our process of purchasing the things we want to make Emma’s desk. If you are wondering what I’m talking about you can check this post – Play Space Makeoverย and Play Space Step One Complete!ย Today we bought the hinges we are looking for and checked out the options for the shelving board. I think we’ll be headed to Lowe’s to see their options and get the rest of the pieces for the desk! So we’ll be starting on that soon ๐Ÿ˜€

Then I hit the batting cages today! Brian’s work has a softball team that plays against other offices and they are always trying to find girls to play so since I’m a female and I know a little about it softball ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve decided to get my practice on! I started slow and worked my way up with the speed and got tired of waiting for my turn so I switched over to the baseball batting cages and ROCKED it! Apparently I’m better at baseball than softball! That was quite a shocker lol!

After that workout and feeling gross I figured I might as well get down and dirty with some crafts while I was already dressed for the occasion. I got out all the supplies and set up camp in the backyard to work on this itty bitty desk I found while thrift to shopping!

Here’s the gorgeous little chair I started with!

I sanded it down real quick with just a light touch to get the shiny cover off of it so it would hold the paint.

I did one coat of white paint which was not enough! I let it dry for about 20 minutes and did another layer.

And TADA! Here is the finished second coat of white just sitting out to dry ๐Ÿ˜€

This isn’t the finished redo yet though! I have more things in mind to finish off this cute little desk. I’ll be cutting out padding and some fabric to cover the little seat and paint the top of the desk with chalkboard paint for some serious fun! After this dries overnight I’ll be working on the second part tomorrow so you’ll get to see the grande finale soon.

This isn’t the desk we were making for Emma but we’ll see when it’s finished! I was planning on selling it but if we love it we might just have to keep it! โค If you want to see what else we found at the thrift store the day I found the desk check out this post – The Perfect Finds!

What did you do today?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,
