With left over paint in the garage and a quick trip to Hobby Lobby for some cute fabric to match her room I gave this desk a new look.
After 3 coats of paint it was finally white. Then it was time to recover the seat. First I unscrewed the seat & laid it on top of the fabric.
I then cut the fabric leaving enough to fold over the old cushion. Folding & holding fabric tight, I secured it with a staple gun. Its kind of like wrapping half of a present. Then I just screwed it back on to the base.
The old “kid friendly” mirror that came with her little jewelry desk fit perfectly on top. But since I couldn’t actually attach it to the desk top, I just used some 3M COMMAND strips (the ones from those removable hooks) on the back of the mirror stand to secure it to the wall. Now it looks like it was meant to be, but if I ever need to remove it, it should come off no problem.
This is the cleanest this table will ever be! When she got home from school that day she spent the afternoon organizing her jewelry etc. As well as putting all her little important things on top for display. Its such a great size & will last her through all her growth spurts!
