rossmurphy - the desk top is actually Ikea's solid wood countertop "Numerar". We didn't stain it. We lightly sanded it and then rubbed in 2 coats of Watco's rejuvenating oil.

Hi AT!

The final round was quite a roller coaster! And while it still stings a bit from losing in the last few minutes, Rob and I are honored to have even made it into this contest. Your kind comments on this page were hands down the best part of the journey! Thank you for all the support.

We are also delighted to see an appreciation for design diversity on this blog. Some may label this room as "minimalist", but we hope that is a positive term for the other modest budgets, DIYers, organized, and lovable clean freaks out there.

Congratulations, Kiel!

No, Howdydailey, we did not modify the countertop. It is the standard 25-5/8" depth.

Thank you, tobias2! The room dimensions are very 'unique' - a narrow 7'-6" wide by a looong 21'-10".

Thanks, moriah rose! The paint is just a simple Benjamin Moore interior white in an eggshell finish.

mwp212 - The small knobs on the nightstand and dresser are from Home-Depot. They were a bright brass at first, so we stuck them in the oven for a couple of hours brushed in vinegar to get a less shiny, darker color.

Thank you, mbenard224! We just painted the bottom of the legs with gold leaf paint and added a little patinaed brass knob.

Britabroad - it is indeed a Lindsey Adelman light. Super affordable, fun and quite easy to assemble.

Thanks, Rachel O.! jbmariani is correct - the desk is from IKEA. The trestle and the drawers are part of the VIKA system and the top is a NUMERÄR kitchen countertop.
