i am seriously in awe of the amount of skill that went into transferring these stencils onto the surface of this desk. i have hard time keeping a stencil straight when it’s simply on a piece of paper…seriously, way to go jill! this was jill’s desk as a child. she revamped it so that her boyfriend (a screenwriter) can use it for work. while the original does have rustic charm, i love that with some skilled handiwork the desk now has a totally different feel. the decorative stencil details you can only see up close are also a nice surprise. great job, jill! -kate

a good desk is something very personal. i know when it came time for me to get a new desk, i searched high and low for the perfect one: it has to inspire me to work diligently while sitting at its edge, but also be a clean and attractive element in the room when i feel like stepping away from it. this makeover from ashley certainly accomplishes the latter, and it celebrates the desk in a fun, bold, exciting color. i just love this crisp green (i think it might be my new favorite color); it pops so nicely against the pale walls. i wouldn’t be surprised if the new desk makes the room. great work, ashley!
