After a few weeks of searching for the perfect desk, I finally scored this solid wood beauty off kijiji.ca last Friday. The top was in need of some TLC, but I was going to paint it anyway, so I got it for a decent price. I just loved the curve of the drawers and the dainty feet!
For the color, I chose Behr’s Watermelon Punch in hi-gloss. Because the desk was so dark and the paint color was so light, I had to apply 4 coats but it took no time at all.
Home Depot also had these gorgeous lion pulls in their hardware section and I’ve been wanting to use them on something for such a long time! It only cost me $25 for 7 pulls and I think they really take the desk to another level.
It turned out exactly how I imagined. I think this piece will be with us for a long time.
The office portion of the room makeover is now complete!
I bought some beautiful fabric from Fabricville this week to make pillow covers with, so I’ll give you an update on how well that goes next :)
