[My Sexy New Desk]

I did end up getting a new desk, but rather than replacing the old one, I placed the new one so I almost have an L-shaped corner desk (the corner holds the printer and computer tower). Plus, I now have room to stretch my legs under my desk when I'm typing and writing! Whoo-hoo!

I've taken the plastic cover off the old desk, touched up the paint where it came off from it, and once it dries, I'll use it for a writing desk and for business files and boxes (I'll post a pic tomorrow so you can see the whole thing complete).

Here it is, though... my personal style in a nutshell, minus the lack of colors--contemporary, whimsical, and clean lines. Love it!

Oh, and a new mousepad--made from recycled materials, too!

[DIY Done]

Well, here it is, step by step, including the final product at the end of the post, in all its glory (handles chosen by availability in the end). Let me know what you think! Did I succeed in modernizing my desk, or did I desecrate an antique? Me, personally, I'm delighted with it. By the way, the color is mostly accurate in the second-to-last photo.
