Goodwill Desk Transformation

Goodwill Desk Transformation

Jen asked the AT community for some advice on pulls for this desk back in April, so we thought we should share the results of this incredible transformation. After looking at the "before" picture, we have to say we are impressed that Jen and her family could see the possibilities; the "after" below the jump really blew us away!

We are stunned by the different a coat of paint and new pulls can make to a piece that had definitely seen better days. We are always happy to see folks inject some new life into old furniture, and are certain Jen's son Sam will enjoy this wonderful desk for years to come. The desk was painted Van Deusen Blue (Benjamin Moore Aura Paint)- a wonderful blue/grey that shifts subtly depending on the light. We love the desk coupled with the map wallpaper and the blue shelves above; Sam is one lucky boy!

You can see more pictures of Sam's colorful bedroom and the rest of the family home on Jen's Flickr page.

Thanks again to everyone who shares pictures with the DC Flickr group. We love getting a peek inside your homes, and sharing your inspirational spaces with the community.

UPDATED: Thanks Jen for sending this new picture with the drawer pulls attached!
