I wanted to make Laura my eldest a desk set for her bedroom. Her bedroom was done tropical (it is my art studio now) so I wanted it to have a fun tropical feeling to it. I found this and that...A table on the side of the road, a shelf and the sides of a chair made the desk. I painted everything i wanted to match white first so that the colors would pop and feel dull. Then i painted it all yellow Paint left over from the walls. Then I took a green and a very stiff brush and brushed it on and off in a way that made a grass like pattern. It gave it a bit of texture and that island feel.
Adding her name to the desk with stickers I already had and flowers I cut out of wallpaper I had found books of..... I also added a bit of bling . I did the garbage can to match and the other side with the wall mural in small.... the pencile holder and envelope opener were also done to match as was the small shelves above the desk. You can see the last two pics are the painting Hannah did that was the inspiration for the design and the mural as well. This is now my grandson sams art desk with his own stuff and he can paint whenever he wants!
