Marnia from Marnia’s Measures & Treasures used several Country Chic Paint products for this piece including Vintage Cupcake, Simplicity, Silver Bullet, and Tough Coat to make this a fun and functional piece for a teen girl’s bedroom!

I had a special request from a longtime customer of mine and it was to makeover her daughters desk for her birthday. They had searched everywhere for a new one and didn’t like what was out there, so a makeover by Marnia was in order!

I had free reign and knowing she loves pink, white, silver and black I was excited to get started. First, I decided the shelving had to go and use the space for displaying her fun Polaroid pics!

I did 3 coats of Simplicity over the entire piece, then 2 coats of Vintage Cupcake and 3 coats of Silver Bullet Metallic Accent Cream in desired areas. For extra protection I applied 2 layers of Tough Coat.

On the side of the desk I created 2 chalkboard areas in Liquorice (3 coats).

By removing the shelving, changing the hardware and decoupaging some pretty paper on the walls of the desk it will be a fun piece this pre-teen can grow up with for years to come!
