Little White Desk


I want to show the after picture first, seems like the before pictures on painted furniture is always ugly ? right. There is nothing like white paint to clean up and doll up a piece of furniture big or small.                          
                                                 
I have always liked any desk that you can stick mail or post cards in slots. I have a big desk downstairs I want to get painted white and use it again upstairs in the kitchen. I was moving it once and dropped it and broke off front legs which can be fixed by someone who knows how. This is when I'm jealous of gals who have a handy man husband who can use tools and fix anything. I can glue rhinestone and paint and sew little but can't use tools
This is a very small tea set setting on it.Some 1900's post card with once cent stamps on them
I painted this while I was downstairs doing laundry this past Tuesday. I took it out back on my patio and gave it about 4 coats of paint. I usually work on something when i'm in the studio which is right next to the laundry room and my storage room that I drag things out of.
My storage room junk is going down since I have had so many yard sales

 Before White spray paint, this little desk is 10 inches in height x 7 x 4 inches , I think I found it at a yard sale once.

It's so small I may put it on my etsy shop? Do you think anyone besides me would want it ?
