So many colors so little time. Update a desk with maps and mod podge.

       A Fun Desk Makeover

   I gave another desk a map makeover.  The paint is Behr  ” Egyptian Nile”.    (  Did I mention Behr is not paying me?  I just did.  )

Mod Podge the drawer fronts.  Put the map in place and apply a coat of Mod Podge on top.  After a few minutes when it started to dry a little, I used a wooden rolling pin to smooth out bubbles.   Once it is thoroughly dry trim around the edges like this. 20140413_165329

   

I chose this green paint for my sons’ bedroom dresser and night stand.  That will be posted soon.  Here is another photo to show the shade of this Egyptian Nile.   #2greendesk

Here it is all finished.  Do you think this would just make a kid want to do his homework?  RFB#2mapdesk

  1. Michelle! So appreciated your sweet comment on my blog earlier – – just had to stop by to say “thanks” and of course, I got sucked into your creative projects. My husband and I LOVE maps as well as refinishing furniture, so this one is a double whammy. YES I’d do homework all day long if I could do it at that desk. Way to go!
