giveaway and desk redo

I want to share with you a score I got on Craigslist it is a vintage desk I got the person down to 10.00 I wanted it for my grand daughter's room which is black and pink and black with white furniture.
she had a old ugly wood desk that didn't match anything in her room I though about painting it but then thought better of it.
This is the desk after I painted it before the contact paper was put on the top, the top shows the ugly color of the whole desk, I am sorry I thought I took a picture of the desk before I painted it but I guess I didn't
I painted the trim around the top white, the drawers pink with white trim, the knobs black with a dot of pink in the middle I already had the colors of paint I used I didn't have to buy any  just bought this really cute contact paper I found at the Dollar store needed 2 rolls to make it fit, it is white with black flowers I glued it on the top.
This is the finished desk with the chair I reupholstered. 
the desk turned out really nice she loves it and matches her room perfectly!
