Fiona's Desk and Homework Center
John found this desk on Craigslist.... And it was FREE!!!!
SO after some cleaning,
sanding and tightening up of the wiggly bits
checking the slides and drawers
Fiona and I will need to find prettier handles and drawer pulls.
John helped and lifted it onto some raised wood so I can start prepping to paint it.
The tabletop was sanded, but overall in great condition. Not bad for a free desk.
I just took out the Gesso.... I wonder what it will be like when it is finished!!!!!??????
Fiona puts some pull into her bedroom make-over... down with the Laura Ashley "Seaside Border"... which was my dream children's nursery.... we pull off the paper layer we scrape and spray with water to get the glue and paper layer off... this is to make way for the grown-up "girls" room that she is getting color samples and design images will be posted soon.... Stay tuned for the next design installment....
Our house, like most in our neighborhood, has the original doors, or doors that have been hung, painted and re-painted over and overagain.... replacing them is the ideal option, however, it is not in the budget at this time... so what to do? Option one: a fresh coat of paint... Option 2: Add a different color paint and some accent colors... the lower image is a test panel I did to see if I liked the option.. it was okay, but not a permanent option for us.... Here's the winning option... A combination of Paint and Wrapping Paper... yes... I said WRAPPING PAPER... and Fiona has a lovely "Butterfly" doorway to her bedroom....
