IKEA Desk Update

 IKEA no longer makes this desk in this color.
That is how old it is.
It use to be my craft station, but I've outgrown it.
I put it in Raedin's room, but it needed a little TLC.
Painters tape and *DIY white chalk paint held the answer.
I left the top and inside the original wood.
The dark of the zig zag is actually wood peeking through the paint.
The chair I picked up at Goodwill for $7. It'll probably get a make over too.

*I mixed Plaster of Paris into white latex paint until I liked the texture.
It makes an excellent chalk paint that doesn't require priming and dries quickly.
