New Desk!

My new desk is finally in my office. It took longer than I expected, but it was worth it!

I guess I will start by showing you the before. This is the day that we moved into our new house. This is the desk that I had been using for 3 years. It was fine, but I wanted something completely different. I also wanted to have space above my desk to put some canvases on the wall.


So, we used the old cabinets from our kitchen. We sanded them down and painted them and then distressed them to make them look vintage. (I love vintage stuff!) So, this is what the cabinets looked like the first time we saw the house.

  1. That’s gorgeous! Would love to do that in my office 🙂 Did you replace the tops of the cabinets with just wood?

  2. Yes! We just got some 2×8;s and a 2×6 (I think). I just stained them and sealed them. Then my husband just screwed them to the cabinets from underneath so that no screws are showing on top. 🙂

  3. Totally stealing this idea, I’ll do turquoise/aqua walls though 😉 lol Hey do you do weddings btw?

  4. Do you have any samples? I’m going crazy because the type of people that have the same style as me want my arm and leg and those who are reasonably priced just aren’t that good. 😛 Would like to see sample and maybe talk about options with you

  5. Hey girl, shoot me an email or you can call me so we can talk about it. 🙂 903-530-4008

    These look great! What was the height of your desk? I’m having a hard time finding desk height cabinets – did you cut your kitchen ones down?
