Knock Off Knock Out Party

Cheri, from It's So Very Cheri, is having a Knock Off Knock Out party today. She asked me to post about my desk. Here is the picture of the desk that inspired me. It's by Kathy Ireland. Price tag: $1,199.00 at Office I liked the black, but a lot of the furniture in my house is black, so I decided to lighten up a little. I also love the drawer pulls here, but since my desk is older, the pulls would have had to be a special order. . . . special order = $. I paid a whopping $10.00 for this desk and I wasn't about to blow that smokin' deal on a few drawer pulls.

Here's my version BEFORE:

And, here it is AFTER:

You can read about the steps taken, and see more pictures here: Old Desk Makeover

Now, head on over to Cheri's place and read about more fabulous Knock out Knock offs!

The desk turned out fabulous!!! The pulls on the desk look great considering they didn't cost you any extra. Why do pulls & knobs have to be so expensive anyways? You have a great desk there.
