Desk makeover DIY

Our desk needed a good makeover. I did not know how to do it.
Notre bureau avait besoin d'un bon rafraichissement. Je ne savais pas trop comment m'y prendre.

I wanted to do something simple, easy, and cheap.
Je voulais faire quelque chose de simple, facile et pas cher !

Since we can't buy chevron shelf liner in France, and I am really into chevron lately (who's not?), I asked my mother in-law to bring me some from the US.
Puisqu'on ne trouve pas de vynil chevron en France et que je suis vraiment à fond dans les chevrons en ce moment (qui ne l'est pas ?) j'ai demandé à ma belle-mère de m'en rapporter de son voyage aux US.

For your information, I bought it on
Pour celles qui veulent, on peut en trouver à Leroy Merlin ou même dans certains grands carrefour. Mais ce sera soit uni, soit avec des pois, ou d'autres motifs.

So, I simply decided to cover the desk, and the drawers.
Donc, j'ai juste décidé de couvrir le bureau et les tiroirs.

I love the way it is !
J'adore l'effet !

What do you think ?
Vous en pensez quoi ?

  1. LOVE your desk! I never would have thought to use shelf liner; I'm very into chalk paint right now for refinishing furniture, but I may have to experiment with shelf liner in the near future.
