It all began with this blog.
needed wanted an office of my own!
Hubby was willing to share his, but, truth be known….
…..I just want my own space!!
Enter the 2nd guest room!
I can’t give up the “guest room”! We have a big family and since we live so far from them, we tend to host large crowds!
I knew it could be both…..an office and a guest room!
Main ingredient for an office? a desk!!
So the hunt was on!
I scoured Craigslist and thrift stores for months looking for the perfect one (at the perfect price)!
I live for the hunt!!
Finally, I found her! $40 bucks later and she was mine!
Just what I wanted! Lots of tabletop space and solid wood. There’s really nothing wrong with her and I could have left her just as I found her.
But that’s no fun!
After practicing with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I knew I wanted to paint her.
Yep, the bug bit me……….
Old Ochre for the legs along with a little distressing…….
…….French Linen for the top!
Followed by clear and dark wax………..
………I’m very happy with how it turned out!!
Now I’m busy accessorizing!
Lots more to show you so I better get busy!!
Until next time………..
