A Turquoise Desk For Natalie

Natalie has been asking me for a desk upgrade for months. This girl is meticulous, organized, and focused. She needed something with drawers to store her markers, pens, highlighters, washi tape, binders, and paper. I finally found a nice, solid wood desk for a great price. 

I almost forgot to take a "before" picture. This was taken after I applied wood filler to the inlaid rectangular area on top. I decided to fill it in for a smooth surface. I picture her pencil piercing through the paper every time she works at her desk. I hate when that happens. 

She wanted the paint color to match her guitar strap, which is a gorgeous deep teal suede. We went with Sherwin Williams Blue Nile.

I was surprised with her choice of hardware and decorative paper for the drawers. 

She didn't want anything too pink or girlie. Mission accomplished. Elephants and wood. I love it. 

Ok, I confess that I am baffled by the elephants. There was an entire aisle of hardware, but she fell in love with the elephants and there was no talking her out of them. Nor should I, because she has to love this desk. If she grows tired of the elephants, they are easy to replace.

Now I think the other side of the room needs more color...
