{Before & After}–desk


I Love the way this desk turned out – it has just the right shade of gray with a touch of brown, and the top stained perfect – feels like butter


This desk is the not the usual style that I would pick for my house, but just something about the clean, straight lines and the little cross bar on the bottom that makes me happy.  I get so excited when furniture turns out exactly like I envisioned :)

How cute would this be in a boys room?!  I love that it has a masculine feel.
