{old typewritter desk}

Isn't she lovely! Isn't she wonderful! I am so happy with how this turned out. I've wanted to get an old desk for so long and now I have one :D(my big cheesy smile). here are the before and afters. The top is stained a dark walnut, the rest is a bright white.



  1. Beautiful! Looks great. I love that the top is the dark stain - what a wonderful contrast!


  2. did you refinish the hardware? I've got some cabinet ones I need to do...any tips?

  3. Natalie-
    I actually spray painted them... yes-really, with a flat black spray paint from ACE. I loved the origional hardware but not the color. I have done this at my parents house too. You can spray paint so many things. I have actually done my light fixtures in my house. They started out silvery/black and I re-did them oil rubbed bronze... much better. Lowes has clearance hardware all the time so go check-often.

    Thanks for coming by, love your blog and check it often. :D come again soon!

  4. Very Nice. Love the contrast of the stained top against the painted body!

  5. Looks great! The top looks perfect!
