A New Look For My Eagle Desk

In 2003, I purchased my Eagle Industries walnut stain, double pedestal desk with hutch.  I needed it for my Dell computer tower, monitor and keyboard.  Little did I know then that the desktop would become somewhat of a dinosaur, and the smaller laptops and all in ones, and iPads would become the newest trend.  I like the transformation, BUT I am thinking about painting the desk.  What would it look like in white?  Annie Sloane chalk paint?

 Here is how my desk used to look:

The old look.



This is the new look.  I used quite of few of my Reader's Digest Condensed book collection (that came with my house 21 years ago). 




I love it except for the printer/scanner.







I think my look is English Country but maybe mixed with a little Grandma Chic.
 

My mail box, a vintage DM Ferry lithographed, dovetailed seed box.  A very special possession. 



I love the new look, books, vintage pottery, and oil lamps!

  1. I like your new look. I've just done something similar, with my entertainment center and desk..more books and basket storage, and a little less decorative things.
