“Still, something about writing made me spend large hours of my free time at my desk.” – John Grisham
BEFORE | VINTAGE DESK
Nothing thrills me like having to find a solution to an unconventional or small space. So when a little girl (with the initials R.G. :)… ) who is entering her tweens begged her Mom (me!) for a “grown up desk,” the hunt began for the perfect piece. It needed to allow for enough room for all of her crafting, as well as a place to study and keep her lap top. After transforming the room to a soothing blue and white oasis, the desk was the last missing piece.
AFTER | LACQUERED VINTAGE DESK
Love me some lacquer! It elevates furniture to another level and works with any style from preppy to eclectic. By choosing to make it white, it blends effortlessly into the room as opposed to obstructing it. To finish this modern desk, sleek lucite knobs replace brass hardware. The chair is one of my favorite go to’s from Ikea for an affordable lucite choice that is as chic as it is comfortable. To add a touch of whimsy, we created a custom piece of artwork by covering an oversized canvas with vintage wallpaper and hand painting a floral bouquet. Simple, clean, fresh…this desk is waiting to be covered in projects!
