We're going green

that is in our guest bedroom!! This past weekend we picked up this antique desk that was my great-grandparents desk. It's green and so we thought a great place for it would be our guest room. So far the room is a pretty blank slate with white bedding and light walls. We thought a pop of color, and some green accents in the room would look fab!! My grandparents are downsizing, so they were generous enough to give it to B and I, all we had to do was move it!!

Here's the room...


Now here is the desk...

I love the look of it and the character it has! I have decided to not touch a thing on the desk!!


We have placed it directly under the window, moved the bed over and put our tree on the left side of the desk... Now I am planning on painting a large mirror with gold trim, white, and then painting the frame above the bed white. We'll see how it turns out.....Happy Monday!

that is so kool! That desk would cost some cash at Homegoods and you got it free! I think pretty accents of yellow would make it really stand out!
