Reburbished Desk ~ Take that Ethan Allen!

027

i received this desk, oh, 3 years ago? from my friend Jen of Savory Simple. a beautifully functional desk, fine as it was. until i got in my head that i need to reburbish it. this is what happens when i read too many blogs:

desk

thank goodness i love the end result.

initial inspiration, subsequent aspirations.
knobs from anthropologie, in clearance bin.
paint from walmart.
top fabric & podmodge from jo-ann fabric & craft.

assistance from Dangerous & Kimma Kim.

watched over the weekend: Mao's Last Dancer and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

and lastly... ahem. U2 tickets were purchased on Friday. in about 7 months i'll be able to cross out #51 in my Life List.

  6. Whoa. The Before and After comparison is ridiculous. I love the color and the different knobs, especially that little pink wicker-y one.

    Woot to scoring U2 tix!
