Desk Makeover

Hello WordPress Universe!

I am really excited about this project! It all started when I found this old Ikea desk on Kijiji for $20 (& that included delivery!). The shape is great and I loved that it was real wood however, it had a couple scratches and the tone was a little “blah”.

My colour inspiration came from this lovely buffet table (which I found on… You guessed it! Pinterest):

I went to The Home Depot and spent $25 on a roller, small paintbrush, sandpaper and some CIL Semi-Gloss paint.

The rest was easy enough.. I sanded down the furniture, wiped it clean and did a couple coats. The key to this project was patience and letting the paint dry before the second coat! I didn’t wait quite long enough and ended up scraping off some of the first coat in the process… Ooops!

I am in LOVE with my new desk; Now I just need a beautiful iMac to set on top of it!

Thanks for reading :)

Home Office Inspiration

Like everyone else, I have been consumed with browsing Pinterest lately… It even brought out a side of me that is interested in interior design (which I never knew existed!). I’m still not crazy about the manual labour that goes into decorating however, I enjoy looking at pictures. Currently, my dining room table is doubling as a desk but I’m working on it! 

Here’s a collection of drool-worthy workspaces:
