Scallop Desk Makeover

24 February 2013

I've been in the market for a new sewing table and I found this adorable little wooden desk at Goodwill for $15.  I was absolutely in love with the cute little scallop pattern on the drawers, but I really wanted to bring it out a little more and also make it match the craft room, so I set out for a makeover!

A few cans of white spray paint later...

The most challenging part was that the tabletop is made of a plastic vaneer, so it didn't take the spray paint very well and it was hard to get it to match up just right with the different material and undertone.  To compensate and glitz it up a bit to bring more gold, so I decided to play with a glitter treatment on the top.  I used a dry brush technique with Martha Stewart glitter paint in Florentine Gold.  I like that it looks a little like vintage formica.

I absolutely love it and I can't wait to get my sewing machine set up!
