I lucked out big time the other day while out thrifting and found this awesome new desk for $25. Score!!! I had already sanded down the top in this pic, but forgot to take the official "before" pic first. This piece is solid wood (for a change). I've been finding a lot of laminate and veneer pieces lately so this was a nice change. And.....look at all those drawers!! I planned to do this makeover without buying one thing for it. I have been building quite a large stash of supplies lately so I wanted to use what I had rather than spend more $$.
Ready for the reveal??! Here is my fresh new workspace :)
Here's a closer up shot of the two toned paint job. Opinions here please??! Be kind, but be honest. Should I paint the drawers cream too?? The two toned-ness is subtle, so it's not super noticeable.
I ended up taking down my giant cork board to give the space a more clean look. I tend to fill all the space I'm given with c-r-a-p, so the smaller the better. I made this fabric covered cork board a few years ago and I think it looks perfect in this space :)
This was the before shot of my workspace. See what I mean about filling every inch I'm given??!
I'm definitely loving this fresh clean new space WAY more. Less cluttered and more "grown-up" Ha ha! Time to get crafty now :)
Hang in there peeps, it's almost the weekend :)
