Style a Desk 3 Ways

We’ve had an old mahogany desk for years and just recently moved it to a nook in our house, that likes to function in multiple ways, i.e. home office, sitting area, and more

Check out how I styled one desk, same spot for three totally separate  functions and looks.

Sure, a desk can be used to study, etc.  But why not as a self serve bar area?

20140517_130127One of the keys to making this type of function aesthically pleasing is to keep it simple and focus on a few special things that speak to you, like these sweet pencils
