Boo’s graffiti-themed desk is finally finished and in use….it’s like a piece of whimsical artwork in her playroom:
This is a super easy tutorial because if you mess up you just go with it! I started out with a $49 desk I found at the thrift store:
I coated it with a few different colors to start:
Then started adding different layers of spirals, words and drawings.
The trick to graffiti is to hold the spray can nozzle really close to your work….so it’s almost like writing. Let it drip! It adds to the effect!
Keep adding words and layers until you are happy with the effect. If you mess up or are unhappy with anything just spraypaint some color over it and start over.
See how great the drips are?

Leave it outside to dry for a few days so that the fumes disperse. Then move it inside!
The paper mache unicorn in the background was another project we did:
