Black and White…No, Black and Wood

Here at UrbanDEN, nothing gets my creativity flowing more than the simple two-tone pairing of beautiful wood grain and deep black tones.  It’s a classic scheme that is both modern and traditional, masculine and feminine, sexy and solid. And it’s always on our mind…so, naturally, when I started prepping this vintage desk for it’s redesign, I couldn’t stop thinking of how beautiful it would be in black with it’s beautiful wood top left unpainted and on full display.

After painting, I was feeling like it still needed something more…so I whipped out some stain and stenciled a fun zebra print all over the top!  The end result is both studious and whimsical, traditional and modern, and would fit in just about any style of room.  Let us know what you think!
