I picked up 2 old school desks for $5.00 each at an antique shop. I was so excited to get them home and transform them into decks for the twins rooms.
First I had to clean them up and scrape off the gum! Holy cow I had no idea kids really did this but there was tons of gum. I think these kids were training for the gum chewing hall of fame! GROSS
Next step, I removed the desk plates which were in great shape so I planned on leaving them as is.
I sprayed the desks with my new favorite product, Rustoleum Hammered Texture spray paint. It covers very well and hides imperfections on the wood and metal, I love it!
After the paint job I reattached the desk and since the frame is all metal the twins used magnets to decorate. The kids love them I’m sure they won’t go off to the college dorms but for Kindergarten they are perfect!
Until next week..
