Luckily, I like everything I own. Well, with one exception: my desk. The desk is a hand-me-down from my sister and used to be in pretty good shape. We bought it at Target years ago and it's still very usable. However, over the years, we stopped caring for it. Finish from the top came off where we had left sticky things, and there was a strange bubbly texture on the top, maybe from water. It needed a makeover. And it needed to match my room.
Before, the desk looked like this, only in a birch color:
After some sanding, primer and paint, it now looks like this:
See that desk chair? It's getting painted next.
I'll admit, it's not perfect. While I like that the desk can hold a lot with the shelves on both sides, I don't like that all my things are open and displayed. Additionally, the paint was scuffed during the move and there's a part of the top that peeled away from the surface already. But those things can be fixed and overall, the desk looks a lot more like me.
