contact paper your desk!

Hooray! Woodgrain contact paper saves the day again- Check out this post over at Apartmenttherapy SF, where AT:SF reader Sofie turned her light woodgrain desk over to the dark side! We've actually done this with several of our furniture pieces too- looks great! Read the before/after story at AT:SF.
