Thrifted Items Up-cycled Or Re-purposed As Desk Decor

Thrifted Items Up-cycled Or Re-purposed As Desk Decor
Over the last several months I upcycled and/or repurposed the above thrifted items.

I had a plan.  These items were going to be new desk decor. I wanted to lighten up the desk without painting the WHOLE desk and hutch too.

 See how I used these pieces on my desk.

I pounded in a very small nail, very carefully to hang them on my desk hutch.

My desk tray "in box" was painted and stenciled HERE.

I upcycled a double frame and stenciled it for photos of our dear pug that we lost one year ago.  

I just added the Tim Holtz craft metal band to the bottom with small brads.  "Know in your heart you are loved."  

The desk area is a great place for Otis's photo, as my vintage dog figurine collection is displayed here as well.

One of the vintage globe bookends on the top right hutch shelf  was upcycled HERE.

The dated picture that I painted and stenciled into a "home" sign was upcycled HERE.

The other globe bookend is here on the left side of the desk.

The buffalo check bookends are on top of the hutch.

I also painted the frames on several vintage art pieces, old white, to brighten up the walls around the desk.

I may paint the whole desk or maybe just sell it and put a different piece of furniture here.

A few more small projects coming in the rest of the living room before more photos!
