But thanks to someone on Pinterest who made it look super easy, my son now has his blue desk. :)
All I did was buy the recommended Zinsser Cover Stain Primer (pictured on original post), blue paint (I just bought the cheap Wal-mart brand), and paint brushes. It cost me about $50 for all of the supplies.
I put about 3 coats of paint on it. Don't know if better paint would have made a difference on how many coats? Thoughts?
This was a VERY beat up desk, but now it looks so nice in the boys' room! I offered to buy different knobs to screw in, but Lincoln said he wanted the old ones. Great, saved me $!
I am happy with the way it turned out, but I will be better about waiting to let primer and paint dry longer the next time I paint furniture!
