Chunky Desk in Pink, Off White & Brown – Before & After

Chunky Desk & Hutch Off White, Pink & BrownThis summer, I transformed a desk I had promised for my daughter. The chunky desk and hutch were painted, glazed and distressed in Pink, Off White, and Dark Brown.

First, the entire piece was spray primed. With the desk laminate surface made of Formica, Zinnser 1-2-3 Bulls Eye spray primer provided the necessary adhesion for painting the desk with latex enamel. Read HERE for more on using this great product on Formica.

Next the desk and hutch were painted Off White, Pink and Dark Brown. Black Glaze accented all these colors, and the original pulls were used on the drawers.
