Mini Roll-Top Desk Redo

Mini Roll-Top Desk Redo 0

This piece has been in the family for years. My little girls played with it and now my girl's dearies play with it. It is a favorite place for the little grands to draw and color in Marmee's upstairs library room. A fresh coat of chalkboard paint on this adorable little just-my-size roll top desk makes little girls happy.
I don't have a "before" picture...will leave it to the imagination! (grimy, white peeling paint, 70's stencils of heart & home painted on years ago in mauve & blue--you get the idea.)


For this Just–My-Size Roll Top Desk Refurbish I used:

-Damp cloth (to get off all the dust bunnies and grimy fingerprints.)
-Orbital Sander with fine sanding discs (to smooth out any bumps and dings.)
-"Chalkboard Magic" [Behr Paint]
-Quilter’s Batting (to pad chair seat)
-Tacks (to attach fabric to seat) (hidden underneath)
-Black Stripe Pillow Ticked Fabric (for seat cover)
-Vintage magazine pages (to line drawers)
