Camille's new desk

I picked up a new desk / dressing table for Camille at Class and Trash last December. Last weekend, I got around to painting it.


Here she is before! 
Here is my inspiration pic from BHG January 2013 issue
And here she is after

I free hand painted the design on the drawers so it is far from perfect. 
I used two different sized biscuit cutters to create the polka dots

Here is the run down on the project.....

First, I did one coat of primer with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3.


Next, I used three cans of RustOleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover 2X in Gloss Candy Pink. After it dried overnight, I free hand painted the design on the drawers and then used two different sized biscuit cutters for the polka dots. The white paint I had on hand from Michaels.



Camille was so excited about the finished product. She immediately put all her make up on top. This picture is her styling. 


And do you spy the mirror from the Goochland Goodwill. I am still trying to figure out the treatment for that...considering chevron or glitter or perhaps glitter chevron? I almost didn't purchase it but am glad I did...it is the perfect fit.
