Ikea furniture question

Ikea furniture question

I know there are many of you out there with Ikea furniture. I have a question for you all. We have 2 desks that are that horrible light wood color. I hope you know what I am talking about? We have 2 desks that look similar to this: http://www.ikea.com/no/no/catalog/products/90118340 Question... can I paint these? If so how do I go about painting them if I want to? I hate the color and not sure if I want to buy new desks yet. I guess it would be a little hard to paint them huh? Also how in your opinion would I go about disguising these desks so that it doesn't look too much like a computer area? I seriously hate the color of these desks. We should have bought white ones. I've been racking my brain trying to figure something out on how to make it look "pretty" lol I guess I won't find out what to do until I move in but I'd still like some of your opinions. Also just as an update we have chosen the following colors for our new place :) From left to right... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Master Bedroom, Kitchen, Living room and hallways and entry way, computer/office room and my daughters room. These colors look alot better in person btw. :-P The last one is a light lavendar color even though it doesn't look that way on here. Thanks ~L
