Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
Oh I know there are all kinds of desks out there made just for your computer. You know the glass ones or the ones with a flip down top drawer for your keyboard etc. But really, who needs that anymore with most people using laptops?
A couple of weeks ago I picked up two awesome desks.
This first one is destined for my daughter in college. I did one for her when she first moved out but because of living arrangements she had to sell it. Now she needs a different one that takes up less space but gives her room for her laptop and her books.
This one is now for sale. I wasn't in love with the handles but I did love all the solid wood and the size is somewhere between an adult desk and a childs desk. The height is adult..but the space between the drawers is slightly smaller than normal.
Both desks were stripped right down, sanded and stained, then paint added, distressed and sealed.
This is what I came up with.
My daughter loves it!
And there is even space under it for books! The size is perfect for her. Now to get it to her. Looks like a road trip for me :)
Now go back and look at this desk "before"
Don't these handles suite this desk more?
I am sooooooooooo pleased with how this turned out. It's all ready for it's new home.
Well maybe...I might add some lining to the drawers..hmmmmmm
It's just so perfect now. Vintage, solid and ohhh so pretty :)
I'm working on an amazing bedroom set for a client, so I guess I should get back at it.
