Before & After: Shannon's Simple Yet Delightful Desk Makeover

Shannon couldn't get this Mid-Century Modern-style desk she found at a yard sale (for "practically nothing," she reports) in her car fast enough! It wasn't in the best condition and the finish was a bit rough, but Shannon loved the shape and had a perfect place in her home for it — after refreshing it with cheery paint.

From Shannon:

I decided that a fun dose of bright color was just what it needed to really come to life! I painted the entire piece a pretty teal color (Behr's Shoreline Green), and painted the edge of the desktop gold (Martha Stewart's craft paint in Yellow Gold).

I also updated the knobs with some lion's head pulls! Seriously, the perfect finishing touch! I love how this desk looks now in my living room, where it acts as both a functional end table and a pretty display piece!

Thank you Shannon!
