A few weeks ago I shared on my Facebook page, this desk that I picked up at my local Goodwill. It is not a secret that I tend to spend most of my lunch breaks there, but I can’t stay away!
It was in decent condition, but the middle drawer was busted…like in pieces..so, not a big deal, it could have been worse..
I loaded it in my SUV and drove around with it in the back of the car all day..yes, kind of weird, but when you find a deal, don’t let it go away, follow your instinct.
The top was covered in something that wanted to resemble leather, but it wasn’t really leather..and it was full of holes and had to go away. I wasnt sure what I wanted to do with it, especially with the top, so it just sat in my garage for a couple of weeks..
..until one day when I found this wallpaper on sale at Allmodern…I just couldn’t belive the clearance price, I mean it was probably the cheapest wallpaper that I could find..I knew its going to work with the desk right away..the color, the pattern, everything was perfect..
I painted the desk in Black Horizon by Benjamin Moore, which is actually a very dark blue..
The knobs are from Anthropologie, and since I only buy from there when they have a clearance sale, I had to wait a few weeks, until I found something that I knew is going to work with the look I was going for..
I used Mod Podge to apply the wallpaper to the top, and it worked like a charm..
The finish is smooth and glossy, and I believe the wallpaper was the perfect choice..
