Gray and White Desk

Faye from MacGIRLver got this desk several years ago from her husband’s cousin. It had been acting as a TV stand in her rec room until Faye decided it couldn’t hide from her paint brush any longer and pulled the desk out for a makeover.

She was inspired to give the desk a “tuxedo” look with a contrast of dark gray and white paint. I love how she even blinged out the knobs a little by embellishing them with jewelry pieces. What a fabulous upcycle!

  1. Thanks for the feature, awesome!

  2. I love the addition of the shelves- these desks can be really useless; adding the shelves brings new functionality to the piece. Nicely done, Faye!

    • Great point, Bettsi! I didn’t really notice the shelves, but they really do add to the functionality. Thanks for commenting!
