Remember I wrote how I’ve been a painting phenom of late?
One of the (many) projects that was included in the malay of pieces that needed refinishing was a ginormous entertainment unit that belonged to my friend Kari.
I only have one before photo to show off, and it isn’t of the entire unit (sorry about that) – but you’ll get the idea of what I was working with:
There are two rooms in my house that I spend the majority of my waking hours in; my home office and my “She-Shop” (aka garage workshop)

Today’s desk makeover has to be one of my all-time favourite desk makeovers ever. […]
So remember I said that I purchased three wooden chairs last week?
