Pretty Desk Makeover

Good Morning Everyone!
I'm not sure if you remember or not but way back sometime last year I moved my daughters desk out into our living room since I loved it so much and thought it would work well in the space.
After finally talking her into painting it, the desk looks oh so pretty in a fresh coat of creamy white paint called Cottage White.

This is what it looked like when I first moved it into the living room.  No doubt it was pretty . . .

But now I think it's GORGEOUS!

The curved drawer fronts and cute little legs speak to me.  I slightly distressed a little here and there after painting and kept the original hardware just like it was previously.  I love the contrast between the white and the aged metal.

I'm loving how it turned out and how well it seems to go with my farm sign.

I decided to keep the same display you may remember seeing before with the addition of a simple lace edged table runner.  I'm still enjoying the simple arrangement and I'm hoping to use it a couple more weeks before I changed things up for fall.  I have a feeling it won't changed to much.  LOL!

Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon,


  1. OH, it IS gorgeous, Robin...looks beautiful in the space!

  2. I love how the dark hardware pops against the white paint. It looks like the perfect place to pen a letter or write out a recipe. Lovely!

  3. Wow The desk looks just as good as I imagined. Your house is going to be pretty much awesome!

  4. Wow - what a great change, and now the beautiful crate stands out even more!

  5. I do love it painted white. Works so well in your room. Mimi

  6. I love the dresser and how you decorated!! Just beautiful! ~ Jamie

  7. I couldn't agree more, that pretty hardware makes such a statement, now!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
