Before & After: A “Business on the Outside, Party on the Inside” Roll-Top Desk Makeover

This past summer, I made over a roll-top desk we inherited from my in-laws…and it’s my new favorite project!

I affectionately call it “the mullet” of furniture makeover projects because of its “business on the outside, party on the inside” nature. We decided to use latex paint (since its thin quality would play nice with the roll-top) to the exterior in a light gray; we added white details to the drawer fronts and to the sides with stenciling; however, when you pull out the drawers, you get hit with a POP of bold turquoise on our peek-a-boo drawers. It’s rather fun in my humble opinion.
