This little mid-century modern desk is a different from most of my redos, but I could see its potential the second I spotted it on Craigslist. It had great bones and just needed a facelift. I had been searching for a small desk to put in the “college boys” room since he took most of the furniture with him last fall.
I decided on a neutral gray that would complement the color scheme I had started in his room. It would also blend with other areas of the house since I am always a threat to rearrange furniture.
I added some scrapbook paper to the inside of the drawers to freshen them up. It’s such an easy fix, just choose your paper and use “Mod Podge” to glue it down.
It serves as a desk for when the kids are home from college on the weekend and need to catch up on homework or study. Well, it’s there anyway. . .
It could also be a sweet makeup table with an added a mirror. With plenty of storage in the side drawers, it's versatile and could also be used as a mail drop/bill paying station where I keep my laptop.
For now it stay put as a study desk, but I may wake up one morning and it will be the target of another “Not Too Shabby” project getting a new color and new home!
