    LOVE IT! I've been eyeing this desk for a while now at Target and just don't have anywhere to put it. FYI – that SW paint – it is self leveling so no sanding….. with the red I prob would still prime but we just painted our kitchen cabinets with the SW Pro Clasic paint and let me tell you – no brush stokes! NO SANDING between coats… it was a beautiful thing. Your room looks great! Thanks for sharing it. Victoria

    It's beautiful! Is the wall color still the same? Nebulous White, I think?

    Love your bedroom. It is so light and fresh. My goodness what a difference some ribbon makes on your bedding and especially the Greek key on the pillows!

    Love the Desk DIY. I bought a white one just like it from Target on sale already, but got inspired to paint the bedside table white. Your post gave me courage and it turned out pretty well with the same exact paints and it wasn't too much work. I do have a question about painting though. When I was applying the 2nd coat of paint 6 hours after the first (can says to wait 4 hours), the paint seemed to "pull" up towards the foam roller and didn't look as smooth as the 1st coat. The 1st coat finished smoother than the 2nd. Any ideas? This is my first time and I'd like to do the dresser as well. Can you advise? Detail: I used foam brush for details and foam roller for the rest. Maybe that's my mistake?

      Hmmm– I'm not positive what the issue could be. Was it hot or humid where you were painting? Sometimes the paint can get gummy if the temp is too hot and that could be it. Or it could have something to do with the foam. I normally use brushes for my furniture, so I'm not familiar with how a foam brush or roller reacts. If you don't like the finish, you can always wait until it's dry, then sand it lightly to smooth it, then apply another coat. Hope that helps!

    Hi Julie, I love what you have done with your bedroom! I especially love the white desk! I have been searching for a glass white campaign desk, but they are so pricey. I found the campaign desk at target, only three colors black red and woodgrain. The black and red are both $149, the woodgrain is on sale $134. I'm wondering if I could buy the woodgrain desk and painted high-gloss white and not see the woodgrain through it? Any ideas or suggestions? Does your desk show any grain??
    Thanks so much!!

      Sherri–Mine is still holding up perfectly. The secret to not letting that wood grain show thru is the primer. So, if you give it a couple coats of the Bulls Eye primer, you should be good! Hope you have fun with it! Definitely a better deal than the ones I've seen, too!

    Love this post! I had been searching for a nice, sleek, white desk with a bit of storage space. I found great white desks, but with no good drawer space. So, I went ahead and got the salsa red desk and the listed products and painted it! It came out well, I'm pleased. The hardest part was getting the drawer handles gold (I didn't have any blue tape), but I made it work. Thanks so much for sharing.
