Turnaround Tuesday: Kate from Twenty-Six To Life


I love reading about people's DIY projects, don't you?

Well, today is the first installment of Turnaround Tuesday, a day where we  focus on DIY projects 
from some wonderful blogs. Today we will be looking at a fantastic DIY project from Kate at Twenty-Six 2 Life.

Before:

Kate scored this find for $75 on Craigslist. She loved the red color, but didn't love the streaks of brown paint that caused the piece to look kinda dirty. There were also some holes that needed to be patched...

 Kate notes that this was the smallest hole in the piece..yikes!

Kate decided that she really wanted a red desk, but this red just wasn't working for her. So she bought some supplies...

 

Primed the entire desk...


And finally got that gorgeous desk painted!

After:

Don't you just love it? I just about died when I saw it, I really think Kate made a beautiful piece look even better...and she did it all for about $100.

Great job, Kate! I love it. And thanks for being a part of the very first Turnaround Tuesday.
