Op Shop Find Makeover

I've been looking out for a decent sized desk, with shelves on top for what seems like ages.
Then, last weekend I found this at the Oppy . Perfection at $40!


So with a bit of vintage wallpaper.


Some new knobs.


And paint left over from doing the dining room chairs.



Its had a bit of a makeover!


Just right for Miss 10. 
Her old desk was so small, she out grew it a long time ago.
I'll take it into the Oppy the next time we go. 
This should do her for the rest of her school years at least!

I'm thinking I might need to paint my sewing table now...

*Swoon*. I love it. Amazing. I need to find some vintage wallpaper for a little cupboard revamp I have waiting to do. I love the colours in yours. Anything with orange is catching my eye at the moment. Cx
