Peekaboo Desk Makeover

It’s funny (not funny haha, but funny strange) that two of my favourite people on the planet are going through a divorce/separation at the same time I am.  It’s meant that I’ve had shoulder’s to cry on and hopefully I’ve given mine a bit in return.

My one friend was setting up her new home and realized that this desk just wasn’t going to make the cut.

New (to me) Dresser Makeover

Funny story;  I was out with my best friend the other day (my Dad) and as we were leaving the restaurant he reached into his pants pocket to check his phone.  He’d missed a call from his girlfriend and he was so frustrated because his phone had been in his pocket the whole night.

Grandma’s Typewriter Desk

This vintage typewriter desk, and antique Royal typewriter are roughly 80 years old (and looked it), but check out the gorgeous finish I was able to achieve with just a little elbow grease.  It’s ready for its next (or first) great novel!

This typewriter desk was my Step-Grandmother’s.  I include “Step” in there, not because I loved her any less, but because I’m feeling terribly guilty for selling it when it really should go to one of her sons who grew […]
