I can't take full credit for this one though. I sometimes like to rough sketch my pieces out before I work on them, and that is what I did. My 6 year old thought it would be fun to color in my sketch with a pen.
When I saw what she had done I instantly got the idea of painting it a solid color and staining the top and the legs on one side only. I gave her a kiss, thanked her and then told her not to scribble on mommy's sketches anymore.
I originally had other plans for the desk of painting it in a jade color. I wanted to make the inside cute too, so I used the jade color inside and bought a medallion stencil to add some fun turquoise pops. I used two ceramic vintage looking teal pulls from Anthro, and 3 coordinating knobs for the drawers on the other side to balance the dark legs.
I finished off the back as well so that it can be floated in the middle of a room.
Now do you see why I named it the traditional, modern, bohemian desk? It's just a very eclectic style desk now. It's not a modern desk, but the two tone and the stained sides give it a modern edge. It's has a traditional style but it's not painted in a traditional way. The mismatched knobs and the whimsically painted insides give it a boho vibe. It's not for everyone but I totally love it!
