I'm not the world's most consistent blogger. But I have a good excuse. Four good excuses. And lately they've kept me hopping. Now that school has started back up, so have all the extra-curricular activities. I love staying busy, but the amount of paperwork my little peeps bring home (homework, permission slips, forms, schedules etc.) could bury us alive. So when I saw this old desk at the thrift store, I couldn't pass it, and the potential organization it would bring, up.
So I hauled it out back, primed it, then gave it the Dusty Spruce treatment (same brush on paint I used for the chalk board, with antiquing glaze). Now each of our school age children has their own drawer for homework, reading charts, soccer & dance schedules, book orders etc.
And we already had this chair waiting patiently in the makeover queue.
Added a little embellishment to the back of the chair just to spice things up, and new fabric on the seat.
And just so you don't think I only play with the blues, let me introduce to you to my new friend "Olive". I'm just getting to know her, but she's a favorite already. Together we're gonna paint the town...or at least the master bedroom furniture.
More to come...someday. I'm not committing to anything until soccer season's over.
The desk is Valspar Signature Seaside Retreat " Dusty Spruce"
