I removed the wood holding the missing pull-out drawer in the middle, gave it a fresh coat of paint, sealed it with a satin finish and then painted an old chair I had found a month earlier in trash to match it. Took the desk/chair combo to my friends store where she listed it at 180 dollars.
Saw this on the curb and loved the legs and hardware. Had purple drawers, stickers all over it and a missing drawer in the middle below desk top.
Used some border wallpaper I had picked up for  less than a quarter to stick to the drawer fronts. Then I put the same hardware back in place.

Ugly little girls desk/ vanity with missing slide out keyboard drawer was turned into a cute Coastal-themed desk or makeup vanity with beachy theme.
