From Drab To Fab! My Desk Decor Makeover on a Budget

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting my blog by purchasing through my links!

Our desk area is finally complete! Well, it’s been complete since late last year, but I’m excited to finally share all of the desk decor and desk accessories and I picked out, along with a few desk DIY projects!

And if you haven’t checked out my TV Stand Decor Ideas on a budget make sure to do that!

The before (so bad!!)

And the after…
Desk | Chair | Frames: IKEA (similar) | Flowers: TJ Maxx | Tape Dispenser: TJ Maxx (similar) | Pencils: Target | Marble Vase: Target (similar) | Small Picture Frame: TJ Maxx (similar) | Monthly Calendar | Magazine Holder: Target dollar spot (similar) | Picture of Christ

I wanted this space to be clean and bright like my TV stand decor. I also wanted the desk decor to hide all of the mess that was just sitting out like it was on our old desk. It’s all about the cabinet space!!!

Desks with gold details are 1) pretty expensive 2) pretty to look at, but not good at hiding the mess. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and DIY the gold details I wanted. Amazon had the best price on a white desk with lots of storage space and the right hardware for spray painting. This is my go-to spray paint for all of my home decor! I love the color and have used it in so many home projects. 

I spray painted the drawer handles, the desk legs, the circular metal pieces that hold the top of the desk and the picture frames. I think it’s quite an improvement from the messy desk space we had before! 

Picking out the desk accessories was my favorite part. I didn’t want to spend a ton on them, so I went to my go-to: TJ Maxx and Target! I can always find the best stuff there! Seriously, the Target Dollar Section is gold. I could spend all my money there (and it feels like I have some days!)

So what do you think?? Anything else I should add to this desk decor??
