07.18.2012 / Wanna Know a Secret?

I’m finally ready to divulge the mysterious secret of the desk that I told you about here.  But, you’ll have to wait until the end of the post.  Unless you’re just THAT impatient and scroll down right now.

I’ve been working like crazy to refinish this $80 craigslist find so I could deliver it to my sister in law this past weekend.  $80 is probably more than I would have spend on a regular old desk, but as I mentioned, this is no regular old desk.  It’s original state was sad, though.  I would have loved to salvage the wood, but the veneer desk top and drawer fronts were beyond help.

Naturally, the solution to that was paint it bright green.  Naturally.

I’m kind of in love with the color.  It’s so glam.  Good thing I can’t cheat on Hubby with a color, he might have competition.  The flower knobs are from Anthropologie, and for the amazingly inexpensive DIY ring pulls, I followed Sarah M. Dorsey’s tutorial.  But, we all know by now that this desk is more than meets the eye.

It’s the PERFECT piece for a spatially challenged NYC apartment.

I have never seen one before.

ever.

Is the suspense killing you??

Ok, fine.

I’ll tell you.

How cool is that?!
