A New Desk {Before}

J has been searching for a new desk for his "home office", and we found the perfect choice at DOP Antiques. My only requirement was to find an antique to fit the style of "The Nest", one of the upstair guestrooms.

Once we spotted this desk/library combo, we were sold. I love the marriage of the simple, wooden desk with the library. The details of the desk are amazing. I cannot wait to tackle accessorizing the pieces. 

My plan is to cover the back of the library in a faux bois wallpaper and use vintage objects to complete the look. Oh! I also want to add a ghost chair.

I will share the "after" soon.

The New Desk, y'all!
