Navy Blue Desk!

Hello, I feel like I have been gone forever.  I hope everyone had a fun safe Halloween.  I am a lover of  Halloween, having kids makes it even more fun.  My oldest daughter LOVES Holidays as much as I do so we make sure we celebrate to the fullest, which means we celebrate for a whole week!  Which includes early trick or treating at a local grocery store, dipping apples, decorating sugar cookies, making mummies and I am sure we squeezed a few more things in.  
No wonder I am so tired after holidays!  
My oldest daughter was a Peacock, my youngest was Sofia the First, and of course I had to wear my witch hat!! 

On to this fun desk I just finished!  This is my first attempt with Navy and I have to say I am loving it!  I loved seeing furniture in Navy but I have been a bit hesitant to do it myself.  I even bought a gallon of Symphony Blue by Benjamin Moore awhile back and it has sat in my garage until now.  

Here is a little peek at the before…not much a of show stopper huh??  
He was a little boring when I first got him but I loved the size, it is a cute little desk.  After I painted him all Navy it was still a bit too dull for my likings…...

And so I added some fun white stripes and turned my vintage faucet knobs into new drawer hardware.  I love the detail it added to the desk!! 

The insides of the drawers were a little gross so I added some chevron fabric to line the drawers.

I used the same fabric to cover this magnet board and added some Faucet knobs to hang things on!!

 This desk and Magnet board are for sale!  See the Furniture for Sale Tab for more details!

Happy Monday!!


  1. What a great makeover Brooke! The white stripes add so much to this piece and those faucets turned knobs are awesome! Love how you lined the drawers in navy and white chevron stripes too. What a difference between before and after!

  2. I love the navy colour! And the Faucets are BRILLIANT!
