This 80s desk makeover is proof, yet again, that thrift store finds really do pay off when redone right. The before version of this desk looks pretty beat up and kind of sad looking, which probably has something to do with the grayish color.
Now, though, this desk looks brand new again, thanks to a $300 lacquer job (which is pricey but worth it for what looks like a brand new desk). Stylist, Emily Henderson, has such a great eye for diamonds in the rough. Doesn't she?
