Primp my desk

My desk has been bothering me for quite some time. I finally realized it needed a good dose of color so I moved one of my favorite pictures of Marilyn out of the guest bedroom (which we pretty much keep the door closed all the time so we don't have to pay to heat it) and hung it above the desk. The result.... Smitten! It is so fun. What do you think?

We found this desk at Goodwill for $10! The lamp we received when Richard's grandpa passed away. We just found a new lamp shade for it, it made the lamp like new! The chair we found at a garage sale and recovered it. Love finding good deals!
Can you see my toast rack? I ordered it off of etsy a while back and I LOVE it! It is so great to hold and show off pretty stationary.
This is what my desk looked like before. My husband finally let me put this chair out in the garage. Whether he will let me sell it or not the verdict is out! : )
