A few months ago I found a desk on Craigslist that I transformed for my daughter's room.
You can check out that project here.
I painted the desk using Annie Sloan Old White chalk paint and then waxed it using a clear wax.
However each time my daughter did her homework, pencil seemed to get on the desk.
She was tired of having to be so careful and I was tired of cleaning the desk each day.
My solution...a clear acrylic sheet I bought at Lowes.
Since it's my daughter's desk, I felt safer using the acrylic sheet rather than having
a piece of glass cut for the top of the desk.
The sheet measured 48"x24".
The desk top measures 42" x 18".
Using a square and a white board marker, I outlined the desk top measurement.
After I traced the dimensions, I laid it on top of the desk just to check my measurements.
Measure twice...cut once.
Using a plastic cutter and a straight edge, I scored the acrylic sheet and cut it to size.
Then using several sheets of scrapbook paper, I made a pattern
on the desk and laid the acrylic sheet over it.
Isn't it pretty? Pretty and protected...the perfect combo.
If she gets tired of the scrapbook paper, I can change it out for other paper or even fabric.
Can't wait to hear what you think.
