I’ve been on the hunt for a desk for my craft room. I found a vintage tanker desk for $30 at a local thrift store and decided to bring it home with me.
I used Rustoleum American Accents 2x Ultra Cover spray paint (affiliate link). It’s got a great gold color and is super shiny.
Would I recommend painting a giant metal desk with metallic gold spray paint? No. It’s a huge pain to get even coverage because of the shiny flakes in the paint. And it shows fingerprints like nobody’s business.
I do love how my desk turned out!
It’s now a golden gem in my craft room! I decided to leave the original faux wood laminate top because I just didn’t think anything else I did would hold up to as much wear and tear as this desk is going to get.
The cow print pillow… in love! Okay, confession. I haven’t actually sewn it yet. It’s just wrapped around the pillow form for pics. BUT I do love it and once I get my sewing stuff all set up, I’m totally making it official with this cutie pie.
And here are some of the decorative goodies. The stag print is a piece of scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby. It was $1 and gold. No brainer! I shared a tutorial on how to make the geometric storage dishes a few days ago. So easy and the shape is so chic.
The craft room is coming along! Yay, yay, double yay!
And here’s the before/after shot:
