Thanks to some basic walnut look contact paper, the desktop was transformed into this:
It was surprisingly easy to stick on, and has a nice smooth finish.
You can see the metal shelf lip at the back of the desk, so the desktop doesn't slide around and is very sturdy.
Here is the desk area now with all of our accessories added. Most of the items we already had (the stool was moved from being a side table in our living room, the lamp was an old thrift store find, the black 'in tray' was $2 from J&J Junk).
I did splash out $2 on the Michaels tulips and weekly planner:
I've been collecting these K's over the past few years:
The storage has been so helpful for organizing our important documents......
.......and my Better Homes & Gardens magazines.
The grey drawer organizers were from Homegoods and will hopefully prevent them from becoming junk drawers.
You can see how slimline the desk needed to be (one of the main reasons I couldn't buy new/used).
I'm so pleased with how it turned out - one step closer to organization.
