update: thrift store desk

thank you for all your feedback on our house-projects! today, i’m very excited to share another completed one with you…

my desk!

it was quite a disaster when i first bought it. but with a bit of sanding, patching, drilling, super-gluing, painting, re-aligning, and a whole lot of dedication- it is finally finished! i decided against painting it white because i thought it was too boring. so i went with grey! at first it looked like a filing cabinet to me, but after a little more sanding and some anthro knobs, i think it looks pretty good! it is in no way perfect, but that’s the beauty of it…

the drawers took the most work. the beautiful handles that i bought did not quite fit the holes that were already on the drawers, so this is where the patching and drilling came into play. but it all worked out wonderfully and they came out great. after they were painted, i thought they looked too clean. so i sanded the frame around each of the drawers to make it look a little worn.

ta-daaaa! the finished product :) i’m very happy with the way it came out and couldn’t wait to start putting things away, so i got started immediately…

then really made it feel like my own space… i’m looking forward to putting more on this inspiration board and decorating the small part of the wall around my desk.

so, my desk is done. and now i need to find a chair. i have some paint that is the color of the knobs, so i’m thinking about painting the chair that color and getting a white seat cushion to put on it, but we’ll see :)

that’s it for now! got a few more things to share with you, so check back soon!
