Home Office, Re-DONE!

This is it.......THE LAST ROOM IN MY HOUSE!!!



We added trim work (no surprise, I have an addiction- I know), 

bought this steal of a deal hutch from Restoration Hardware, I painted the desk, added a cool light..... and it's done!

Faux Brass Top Desk - I had heard of "Zinc topped tables" and figured the same effect would work for a Brass top.  To get a real brass metal table topper was possible- but very expensive, so I decided to see if I could fake it with paint!  I kinda followed this tutorial and just used a gold metallic paint to start with instead of silver.  I used some black paint and some brown stain to give it the "aged" look.

I painted the desk legs grey (Annie Sloan's French Linen)

The curtains are from Ikea but I added the little cross detail with a sharpie!  
I used a stencil as my guide and it was pretty darn easy.

The round stools under the desk were from Target just a few months ago- but it looks like they are no longer available (anywhere!)
The Book Case is actually a "hutch" from Restoration Hardware, we went with the 103" high one in "Antique Grey Oak" (for some reason this is cheaper than the 91" high one!  Regularly $4000, on Final Sale for $1500!!!)
 Light is the 18" double pendant from Restoration Hardware
The Picture light is also from Restoration Hardware
The majority of the items on the book shelves are from Target.  Some exceptions are the trophies, the brass metal basket, and the white wood box with handles, those are from Home Goods.  The large golf ball was a thrift store find.  The little white and brass Candle sticks are from World Market.
