White and Gold Glam Desk Makeover

Hello! I ran across this desk on a yard sale site and knew it had great potential. I needed one for my office and this was the perfect size. I wanted something simple that wouldn’t take away from the bold decor I have in there. This was perfect!

It was in pretty bad shape when I got it. Covered in several layers of black, teal and red latex paint and lots of gouges on the top as you can see here:

I sanded it down and painted it with Heirloom Traditions Chalk Type Paint in French Vanilla.  For the gold accents I used this fabulous product called Little Billy Goat Sticks. I chose the “Gold Leaf”. These are so awesome! They are little sticks for highlighting that come in seven different colors and are super easy to use. I love how it turned out!

I found this awesome cactus tapestry online that I’m loving!! To see the details click my affiliate link here. I’m a bit tapestry obsessed now.

I hope you enjoyed this makeover. Thanks for dropping by! -L
