Desk and Chair Makeover from Old to New

Learn how to update and renew an old desk and chair set. This outdated pair was painted with HomeRight tools for an easy makeover project!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great Holiday and I hope everyone is adjusting back to everyday life. Right before Christmas I did a quick and easy makeover to an old desk that my friend gave me.

My little lady is growing up and so we decided to replace her dresser with a desk. Most of her clothes fit in her closet so the dresser wasn’t really needed anymore. Both the desk and chair needed a little TLC!

I grabbed two of my favorite DIY tools and got set up in my daughter’s room. The December winters in Minnesota make it hard to paint outside. Thankfully, the Medium Spray Shelter came to the rescue!

The Finish Max and Medium Spray Shelter are the perfect duo! The Medium Spray Shelter really helps with the overspray. I do suggest covering up furniture around your work area for extra protection.

: I filled up my Finish Max container with Sherwin-Williams paint. I used the Emerald series as it is a stronger paint and this desk will get lots of use. I painted the desk in the same color as the walls, White Dogwood. I wanted it to blend in but I also used a gloss finish so it didn’t disappear.

I had to do two coats as both the desk and chair were very dark in color. I love that the container has a cap so you store the paint in between coats.

The desk turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. I recovered the cushion on the chair with the same fabric that the drapes and bed canopy have!
