Since I love interesting furniture pieces, I decided to paint my own piece of furniture for my senior art project. I first saw handpainted furniture on a website that my mother had shown me and I decided to design my own. I purchased an unfinished wooden desk and began to draw different patterns for each section of the desk. The desk was painted two shades of light and dark green, gold and hot pink. Finally, I put on two coatings of polyurethane to protect the desk from chipping or scratching. The colors of my furniture piece match my twin sisterís, so when we put them in our bedroom, we will have similar pieces. I enjoyed designing my desk very much; it was a very good experience.
