My desk makeover....Chevron Pattern top!

After seeing this DIY on the Sunset Magazine website, I had to try it! My desktop was needing a face-lift so the minute I saw this Chevron pattern, I knew this was for me! It took a bit to get it all done, but well worth it! So, what do you think?? Would you like to try this on your desktop? If yes, go here for the instructions.

  10. it looks great, dear! my desk is made of natural wood and it has a pretty vintage feel, but if that wasn't the case I would definitely try it out :)

  11. Usually when I see chevrons I think of the military (or the gas station lol) but this is really feminine and compliments the overall aesthetic of the desk without overpowering it. Well done! I've got an old ugly wood desk (which was probably very nice at one point) and I've been thinking about redecorating it somehow, so I'll definitely check out this diy.
