I had decided I wanted a different desk for my sewing machine from my scrapbook/craft table. So I ended up buying this desk on clearance at Target for $50. I also bought a cute pink, green, and white ottoman to match my room colors. So I decided the desk absolutely had to be the same green as in the ottoman. I first primered the desk, then painted it green. It is absolutely perfect. Unfortunately it didn't dry all the way and I now have to redo the top but it will be absoluely perfect once I do that. I am so in love with it and it's the perfect size.
