A lot of us are still working from home right now and likely will be for a while. So if you haven’t whipped your work from home space into shape yet, it’s time to get motivated! We’re loving this modern sawhorse desk from Ashley at Handmade Haven; it’s sleek, chic and can be customized to fit any space in your home. And with all of the COLORSHOT Spray Paint colors to choose from, this spray-painting project makes it easy to create a totally inspiring space to work from.
• COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paints in desired colors (Blackout shown here)
• Sawhorse desk (or desk of choice)
• Protective surface cover for spray painting
To get the full tutorial on how Handmade Haven built her own sawhorse desk, visit her post. You can modify the dimensions she used to fit your own space! If you’re doing your own thing, you can get the quick spray-painting project deets here. Make sure your base is clean and free of any dust and debris, especially if you’re building your own set of sawhorse legs. Even though COLORSHOT already has primer in it, depending on the materials you’re working with, you might want to basecoat with Primer first.
Spray several light coats of color versus one heavy coat to avoid any color drips. Once you are happy with your coverage, let dry and cure completely before securing the top of your desk or attaching any additional shelving or fixtures.
When your desk spray painting project is finished, it’s time to set it up in your space! You can use it for your own workspace or create an arts and crafts station, or even a desk for your kiddos when they get back to schoolwork. Make it inspiring and a place you feel happy and motivated to work in each day. For other COLORSHOT office space ideas, check out our Girl Boss Office Makeover. Now who’s ready for a lunch break?
