The girls from Matters of Style decided to skip the expensive Williams Sonoma desk (top, left) and DIY their own metallic-legged workspaces.
Both inspired by the $1,500 sawhorse-desk-to-end-all-sawhorse-desks, they each combined glass desktops with two sets of IKEA's most popular sawhorse-style legs, the VIKA LILLEBY ($15 each, top right) and the VIKA LERBERG ($10 each, bottom) trestles.
And how did they add that little touch of glam? By spray painting the legs with a super-metallic spray paint.
You can get the same look from IKEA parts or by making over your own desk at home. These ladies went with a Krylon Metallic gold paint to get the look of bronze legs, but you could give your office a silver finish to get closer to the Williams Sonoma look.
If you're painting wood to try and look like metal, be sure to give your desk's legs a generous coat or two of primer beforehand. If you're trying to metal-up plastic pieces, try out a wax-metallic finish like Rub n' Buff.
