Office Makeover Has Begun! White Desk & Painted Walls

Glossy White Desk by The Pink Lantern

I could have easily called this post "A Love Letter to My Desk" but that might be a little weird. Now that the office walls have been painted my new (old) desk got to move in. I love this desk. It is the first piece of furniture I re-did! 10 years ago I bought it for $30 at a dusty, cramped resale shop while visiting my grandparents. I have fond memories of my grandpa letting out a few swear words while trying to jam it in the backseat of our car. Yes, I was the 18 year old who re-did vintage furniture to take with me to college. What can I say? :)

I've learned a thing or two about painting furniture in the past 10 years (i.e. NEVER spray paint your kitchen table.) and this desk has gotten a little extra distressing along the way - but that makes it a bit more special. I love how the bright, glossy white pops against my newly painted "Light French Gray" walls!(by Sherwin-Willams) I'm so excited, the "bones" off my office are in place - the walls are painted, the chandelier is up and now my desk is in place. I can't wait for the whole thing to come together!

  1. I'm obsessed with gray walls! I hate that we're renting right now and have to have white!! LOVE LOVE the desk! I think we might have the same gray rug!!

    1. Thank you Marie!! :) We rent our condo too! I'll have to paint everything back to white when we move out but its worth it. Ikea rug? I bet it is the same one! Can't beat the $19.99 price tag!

  2. This was a fascinating read, I really enjoyed it. It’s really a creative thought on wall designs. Andrew Johnson
