Are you ready to update your home office but don’t want to spend a lot of time or money? An easy fix is a quick color refresh by upcycling an old desk or chair. You may already have something at home that needs a make-over, or unique options could be found at a local consignment store.
The color palette chosen for this project was inspired by a piece of bright floral fabric found at a craft store.
Desk: Compass Blue MQ5-54
Desk Legs: Celebration MQ4-13A
Chair: King Salmon M180-05
Wall: Campfire Ash N320-1
Furniture / Paint: Behr Premium® Cabinet & Trim Satin Enamel
Furniture / Primer: Behr™ Kitchen, Bath & Trim Stain-Blocking Primer & Sealer
Wall / Paint: Behr Ultra® Scuff Defense ™ Interior Extra Durable Flat
With any furniture makeover, you will want to start by cleaning, lightly sanding, and priming. When you are ready to paint, use a sponge roller on flat surfaces for a smooth finish. Always let the paint dry completely before applying a second coat.
A deep bold blue combined with the vibrant splash of yellow gives this desk new life. Compass Blue suggests richness and depth while Celebration feels like the life of the party.
The muted coral, King Salmon is a complimentary color and brings a softness to the room. The floral pattern for the upholstery has a lively playfulness.
With some paint, upholstery and decorative accents the furniture becomes the focal point in the room. It is all that is needed to make the space feel fresh and vibrant.
