Melted crayon desk makeover
I’ve done a lot of desk makeovers over the years – antique desks, peekaboo desks, secretary desks, stained finishes, painted finishes… desks are one of my favourite pieces of furniture to refinish… but this one had me questioning the owner’s sanity. This desk was going to have a melted crayon river in the top of […]
Black desk makeover… to black?
This desk makeover is a bit different than the furniture makeovers I usually show… because I stripped it down and refinished it to the same colour.

Antique desk makeover to die for!

One Room Challenge – Week 5 – Marble workspace
It’s Week 5 of the One Room Challenge and I’m almost done! But… the final reveal isn’t until November 16th, so I have to space out my remaining few projects to keep you on the edge of your seats. Okay, okay – it’s not an “edge of your seat” type makeover, but it is pretty […]
