I had mentioned to my husband that I was thinking about putting a small desk in the corner of the front living room, since we did not use that room often. I had started pinning desk ideas and since I did not want to spend much money, I thought we could build one. He started plotting and ended up surprising me by building me a beautiful, retro hairpin leg desk! We were able to customize it so it fit perfectly in the small space we had to work with!
I painted the frame of a cork board (that my hubby also made) with the same paint color I used on my mini crate that holds my Cricut tools. I found this super cute calendar, that you can color, at Big Lots.
I picked up the metal organizer, gold Ampersand, and jar of over-sized paperclips from TJ Maxx on clearance to decorate my desk. The magnetic holder was silver, so I used my Homeright spray shelter and Rust-Oleum spray paint in Seaside to give it a pop of color.
The three-sided tent is the perfect size to paint smaller items like lamps or smaller home decor accessories. You can set it up on a workbench or table top, without having to worry about over-spray. I set mine up on my front porch to keep the paint fumes out of the house.
It comes in a convenient, round carrying case and folds up with a twist of the wrist. This is definitely my new favorite DIY product...no more saving cardboard boxes! I have already used it on several projects.
Now this fits right in with my other turquoise accessories!
Do you have your own designated space for your office, or do you have a room that does double duty?
