Jamie snagged this vintage desk over 2 years ago at a local thrift shop. During that time, she's been using the desk regularly as a dedicated blogging space. But the desk was overwhelmed with electronics. And the overall effect of the mismatched stool + desk wasn't working for Jamie, so she made over both. Retained the original patinated hardware but painted everything else with General Finishes Black Pepper. (If you've never used GF products, you don't know what your missing! They'are fabulous.) As for the stool, she shot it with gold spray paint and "hacked up a perfectly good rug from the TJ Maxx" to make the fuzzy top. Enough with the words; check out the after pic:
Jamie's going to continue using the desk as a desk, but wouldn't it make a perfect dressing table?
