Red Superhero Desk

Thursday, October 4, 2012

 
 I am in love with the way that this desk turned out!
It is just the perfect thing for the boys' superhero bedroom.

I picked the desk up at a garage sale for $10 a few months ago.  After taking the old {wooden & square} knobs off, I gave it a good sanding.  Then I stuck it out on the front lawn to spray paint the entire thing.  After two coats of Krylon primer and four coats of Krylon fire engine red I had created a lovely red crop circle on the front lawn.  I'll just mow it later.  Ha.

These DIY superhero drawer pulls are the perfect finishing touch.  You can find more details on them here.

The desk is also perfect for the boys' small, shared bedroom.  It is only about 3 feet by 18 inches in size and provides a great little workspace for when they go to school.

I am working with a red, yellow and blue colour scheme throughout the room.  I have big plans for a couple of superhero paintings before I can do a full bedroom reveal.

 
Batman has to be my favorite drawer pull.
Seriosly!  It's Batman!

 
The 'be the good' sign is a new DIY, the little basket is something that I made out of sinew and pine needles back in highschool and the pencil holder globe is a fab find from the thrift store at $4.

 Love, love, love it!
