123rd Power of Paint Party… Avocado Desk

Welcome Paint Lovers to this week’s Power of Paint Party… a party to showcase all latest, a-mazing paint projects!

This week I decided to update a garage sale piece I scored a few years ago for $3!  Don’t you love a great deal.

This is what the desk looked like when I originally painted it black a few years back…

I used Valspar’s Avocado Green Satin spray paint.  The key to successful spray painting is multiple light coats.  Most spray paints allow you to recoat within minutes… so it really doesn’t take time to do the multiple coats.

I moved it from our entryway to our master bedroom.  Now to accessorize and find a cute little chair.

Power of Paint Party Rules:

#1… This is a PAINT party… so pretty please, link-up only paint related projects.

#2… I’d love if you put my nifty POPP button (you can find it up in my menu bar’s BUTTONS) in your blog post or a link back to this party somewhere on your blog… that way others from your blog can check out all the paint projects too. (not a requirement but always appreciated)

#3… Share the Love… visit the other paint pals.
