I first painted the desk with Behr Premium Paint with three coats. After the paint had dried i measure the inner square on the front of all four drawers and made templates using office file folders. Once I had my templates i traced an outline of the template onto a vintage map i 'borrowed' from my dad for a bookmaking project that never happened. (I always have good crafting intentions) But i am glad that i still had it in my stash because i think it adds just what this desk needed.
Now normally i'm not into things that are super matchy-matchy, but i couldn't resist taking an old lamp that i bought at Walgreen's my freshman year in college, and transforming it into a vintage map lamp. LOVE the way this looks lit up. (I'll post tomorrow how i used the left over pieces to make the lamp).
